Over the past week, in the north-eastern Indian state of Nagaland (state capital city Kohima), at least 12 people have died while thousands more were displaced by floods and landslides triggered by severe monsoon rainfalls. Hundreds of villages have been affected by these seasonal storms.
India experiences severe rain during the monsoon season (June to October). Monsoon rains frequently cause flooding, landslides, population evacuations and transportation disruptions.
Individuals present in Northeast Indian states are advised to monitor the weather situation and forecasts, to anticipate localized flooding and associated road hazards, and to adhere to any instructions issued by local authorities.
