Rainstorm Kills Dozens, Injures More Than 100 in India


A powerful rainstorm has swept parts of north and western India, causing houses to collapse, toppling trees and leaving at least 72 people dead.

Relief commissioner Sanjay Kumar says the devastation is particularly severe in Agra, the northern Indian city where the white marble monument of Taj Mahal is located. He says 36 people have died there Wednesday night as the wind speed touched 130 kilometers (80 miles) per hour. Some people also were killed by lightning.

The Press Trust of India news agency says at least 27 others have died and another 100 are injured in the western Indian state of Rajasthan.

The rainstorm caught people by surprise as the monsoon season is still more than six weeks away.(VOA)
