At least 18 people have died as massive floods ravaged northeastern India and Bangladesh, leaving millions of homes underwater and severing transport links, authorities said Saturday.
In India’s Assam state, at least nine people were killed in the floods and two million saw their homes submerged, according to the state disaster management agency.
Lightning in parts of neighbouring Bangladesh killed nine people on Friday.
Both countries have asked their militaries for help as more flooding looms, with rains expected to continue over the weekend.
