Posted on by

The death toll from India’s monsoon floods climbed to 202 by Tuesday as heavy rainfall kept pounding coastal regions in the west and south, causing devastating landslides and floods in several parts of the country.

Authorities have already moved more than 1.2 million people to relief camps.

The southern tourist hotspot of Kerala bore the brunt of monsoon downpours. “The death toll in the state has increased to 88… and there are still at least 40 people missing,” Pramod Kumar, Kerala police spokesman, told AFP.
