Heavy rain caused flash floods in northeast india.

Recently, heavy rains in Northeast India caused flash flooding that caused the bursting of the glacial lake. This resulted in the death of 14 people and 100 people are missing. Yesterday, the flooding waters passed through the northeastern state of Sikkim. Several roads and bridges were washed away.

The cloudburst happened over Lhonak Lake which sent waters to the Teesta River in the Lachen Valley of Sikkim. This all happened quite suddenly and wrecked havoc on the unsuspecting residents in the surrounding areas.

Several rescue teams along with Indian army officials have been deployed to provide the much-needed help. It has also been reported that many tourists have been left stranded in many areas.

In recent months, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand have also faced similar natural disasters that have caused damage to property and loss of life. Such incidents have now become quite frequent.
