Foreign media, citing Indian authorities, have reported that at least 14 people have lost their lives, and 104 others remain missing due to flooding in India.

The Guardian newspaper reported on Thursday that heavy rains and deadly floods in the northeastern Indian state of Sikkim have claimed the lives of 14 people, with dozens still missing.

The incident reportedly occurred on a Wednesday, and the official reports indicate that it has had a substantial impact, affecting more than 22,000 individuals.

Alarmingly, among those missing, there are 22 army personnel who were actively involved in the rescue and relief efforts. The situation underscores the gravity of the disaster and the challenges faced in responding effectively.

Videos shared on social media show that the muddy floodwaters have inundated residential areas and caused the collapse of homes.

While rescue operations persist, authorities have sounded a note of caution. They emphasize that the ongoing relief and rescue efforts will face significant challenges due to the expected heavy rainfall in the days ahead.

Furthermore, the disruption of mobile and landline phone services is expected to exacerbate the difficulties rescue teams face and those affected by the floods face.
