Extreme weather in India leaves hundreds dead
Also in India, at least 113 people have died and 50 were injured after several days of landslides and floods caused by heavy monsoon rains in the western state of Maharashtra, as rescuers tried to locate at least 100 missing, reports AP.
More than 130,000 people were rescued from nearly 900 affected towns across the state, according to Sandhya Garware, a government spokeswoman. Many were stranded on rooftops or on buses on the highways, the news agency notes.

The Indian Navy said it had deployed helicopters to evacuate stranded people and sent rescue teams with boats to the region. One of the hardest hit towns was Talai, 270 kilometers (168 miles) south of Mumbai, the capital of the state of Maharashtra and a financial and entertainment hub.
The village of 59 homes was engulfed by a massive landslide Thursday, according to state official Sagar Pathak. Rescuers found two more bodies on Sunday, bringing the number of dead neighbors to 42, with as many still missing.
