India – The death toll from a fresh spell of monsoon-driven floods in India has jumped to 190 and affected more than a million residents, officials said on Monday. Heavy rain and landslides have also forced hundreds of thousands of people in southern and western India to take shelter in relief camps, while train services were canceled in several flood-hit areas. Officials warned that fuel shortages were widespread in districts that were cut off from larger cities. The states of Kerala, Karnataka, Maharashtra and Gujarat were the worst-hit, but others like Madhya Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Goa and Andhra Pradesh have also reported flooding.
