India begins landslide, flood clean-up as deadly monsoon rains ease



Rescuers waded through waist-deep mud in western India ทดลองเล่นสล็อต to reach injured residents and start a massive clean-up as the death toll from monsoon-triggered landslides and floods climbed to 198.


In the worst-hit state of Maharashtra, rescuers halted search operations in the hillside village of Taliye, southeast of Mumbai, where 53 bodies have been recovered.


Local authorities said efforts to retrieve the bodies of 31 others still missing - after a massive landslide brought down dozens of homes on Thursday - would cease, with their names counted among the dead.


India's west coast was hit by severe rainstorms over several days, with a quarter of a million people evacuated from their homes in three states and power cut across vast areas.


Experts say climate change is increasing the frequency and intensity of the annual deluge - which is critical to replenishing rivers and groundwater but also causes widespread death and destruction.


"The focus has now shifted to evacuating the injured and restoring electricity as water levels recede," a National Disaster Relief Force spokesperson told AFP.


"The rainfall has stopped in most places and water levels have receded. We are helping with clean-up, relief and restoration."


In the district of Satara neighbouring Taliye, at least 29 people were killed in multiple landslides.
