Heaviest Rainfall In Decades Kills Dozens In India, Pakistan



At least 50 people have been killed by heavy monsoon rains in northern India and northwestern Pakistan.

In northern India, the heaviest downpours in more than 30 years flooded large parts of Jaipur, the capital of the desert state of Rajasthan, killing at least 20 and forcing more than 20,000 to flee, according to BBC News.

Jaipur received an estimated 172.4 mm rainfall – a record since 1981, The Times Of India reports. The current monsoon season has already killed more than 500 people across India.

Meanwhile, at least 34 people have been killed in flashfloods in the northwestern province of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, the northern part of Punjab and Pakistan-administered Kashmir.

The Pakistan Meteorological Department predicts more rain in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa and Punjab in the next 24 hours.
