At least 60 people have died in northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh due to floods triggered by heavy rains and lightning, authorities said on Saturday (July 28). Thousands have been affected by floods that have submerged many areas and caused severe water logging, disrupting normal life. Authorities have said that besides 60 human deaths, 52 people have been injured due to heavy rains, lightning and flooding that happened since Thursday (July 26). Building collapse due to rains have also been reported in Uttar Pradesh. Authorities are working on repairs and rescue operations. Seasonal monsoon rains, a lifeline for farmers across India, typically cause loss of life and property every year between July and September.
