More than 20 people have been killed in floods in southern
India after heavy rains caused rivers to overflow, cutting off
towns and villages.
Several houses were washed away and people became
trapped in the district of Kottayam in Kerala state.
Days of heavy rainfall in Kerala have caused deadly landslides
and the Indian military has joined rescue efforts.
Officials on Sunday, said helicopters have been used to fly in
supplies and personnel to areas where people have been
trapped under debris by the landslides.
Dozens of people have been reported missing and there are
fears the death toll could rise further.
