Entornointeligente.com / At least 110 people have been killed in landslides and flooding triggered by heavy rains in the western Indian state of Maharashtra. The rains overwhelmed hundreds of villages, sweeping away houses and leaving residents stranded. Rescue crews have been racing to evacuate survivors but many people are feared missing. The Indian military has been helping the efforts, which have been hampered by difficult conditions. The western state has recorded its heaviest spell of July rain for decades. Many factors contribute to flooding, but experts say climate change caused by global warming makes extreme rainfall more likely. On Friday, Indian officials said most of the deaths had been caused by landslides and flooding in two districts.
