The rout of floods currently sprawl across central, northern and western areas of country. In the northern state of Uttarakhand, at least 40 people are feared dead in floods brought on by the annual downpours. Thousands remain stranded following landslides which have blocked hundreds of roads. Most of Madhya Pradesh has been lashed by rapid rainfall over the last few days. Many districts are almost completely swamp with Satna and Rewa are among the worst affected. The state capital of MP Bhopal recorded 196mm of rain the 24 hours up to 06:00 GMT on Saturday. This may be the moist time of the year, but that is almost 60 % of the entire June average rainfall of 331mm. Flash floods active by heavy rainfall have also inflict ruin in India's northeastern Assam state. Nearly 20 villages in Jorhat district have been cut off by the high waters.

India's monsoon rains were 35% above average in the week ending July 6th. That figure was as high as 57% above the norm for the northwestern part of the country. The monsoon of June-September has so far delivered 1% higher rainfall than average. That may be sound good but the irregular of distribution is made clear view of figures closely. The seasonal rain across the northwest from June 1st to July 6th is 19% above average. However, India's east and northeastern regions still have a deficit of 17 percent. Their wettest spell should set in over the next few weeks.
