Torrential rain ,Landslides killed 15 in Tamenglong (India)

Heavy monsoon rains flooded several low-lying areas of India’s financial capital Mumbai this week, paralysing train services used by millions of commuters daily and causing flight delays.

 At least 15 people died in floods and landslides in India on Wednesday, officials said, pushing the death toll from the annual monsoon rains pounding the country closer to 200.
Landslides swept at least nine people to their deaths in Manipur in India´s remote and hilly northeast, said the state´s chief minister Nongthombam Biren. "I am deeply saddened to know that nine precious life lost due to landslide at three places in Tamenglong headquarter," he wrote on Twitter.
Eight of the victims were children, including several from one family, local media reported. Separately, six people were killed in floods and landslides in Uttarakhand, a Himalayan state in India´s north, officials there said on Wednesday. Four members of one family were swept away by a landslide and two others drowned in a river swollen by heavy rain, state emergency department official Piyush Kumar told AFP.
The arrival of the monsoon, which lasts roughly from June to September, is heralded by millions of Indian farmers but the relentless rain wreaks death and destruction every year. Already 34 people in Assam, another hilly state neighbouring Manipur, have been killed since May. Nearly 2,000 others have been forced from their homes by floodwaters. In Maharashtra in western India, 62 people have died since June due to flooding and landslides, said the state´s revenue minister Chandrakant Patil.
Torrential rains triggered landslides in northeastern India on Wednesday, killing eight children and a woman, an official said. Heavy rains set off landslides in Tamenglong, about 155 kilometres (96 miles) west of Imphal, capital of the state of Manipur, a government official said. “A total of nine people were killed and that includes eight children and a woman in three separate incidents of landslides in the Tamenglong area since early Wednesday,” Tamenglong district magistrate Ravinder Singh told Reuters by telephone. He said rescue workers were looking for more people buried in the debris. Flash floods triggered by heavy monsoon rains in South Asia have killed dozens of people and displaced more than a million, most in northeast India and Bangladesh, since June. Heavy monsoon rains flooded several low-lying areas of India’s financial capital Mumbai this week, paralysing train services used by millions of commuters daily and causing flight delays.
