The death toll arising from heavy rainfall which caused floods and landslide in the Indian state of Kerala has reached 200 according to rescue officials.
Reports say thousands of stranded people are waiting for rescue as relentless monsoon floods continue to batter Kerala for over a week.
According to the Kerala State Disaster Management Authority (KSDMA), more than 2,600 villages have been flooded.
The state is “facing the worst floods in 100 years”, chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan said on Twitter, adding that at least 324 lives have been lost so far since the monsoon season started in June.
The incident has turned out to be Kerala’s worst monsoon in almost a century, as authorities have placed local agencies on the highest alert level.
