8 Killed After Heavy Rains Hit India's Maharashtra

Many believed to be trapped, official says, as monsoon rains cause landslides, building collapse.

At least eight people were killed after heavy monsoon rains triggered landslides and a building collapse in India's western Maharashtra state, officials said on Friday.
Five people were killed and many are believed to be trapped due to landslides in the Raigad district, while three others died after a building collapsed in the country's financial hub Mumbai.
According to Nidhi Choudhari, a senior civil official in Raigad, four incidents of landslide were reported on Thursday night.
"Five people have died. Many are believed to be trapped," Choudhari told Anadolu Agency over phone. She said that the disaster response teams are facing difficulties in reaching the village as heavy rains submerged the roads.
Choudhari also said that 15 people were rescued by the authorities after the incident.
Meanwhile, Dr. Vidya Thakur from Rajawadi Hospital in Mumbai confirmed to Anadolu Agency that three people died in the building collapse in the eastern Mumbai's suburban neighborhood of Govandi early Friday morning.
Maharashtra and other Indian states are currently witnessing monsoon rains that have caused flood-like situation in many areas.
The Indian Navy on Friday morning said that they have mobilized rescue teams for flood relief and evacuation in Maharashtra.
"Despite adverse weather conditions and widespread inundation in affected areas, a total of seven naval rescue teams departed by road for deployment to the Ratnagiri and Raigarh [Raigad] districts," a navy spokesman said.
Last week, at least 29 people were killed due to the landslides caused by heavy monsoon rains in Mumbai. -
