INDIA (AP) - A stretch of embankment along a river in eastern India collapsed Saturday.
Floodwater submerged homes in a number of villages located along the river banks. Some people stood on sandbags as they watched fast-moving floodwater rush past them.
Others found themselves walking waist-deep in water. Flooding triggered by heavier than normal rain in mid-June left at least a thousand people in northern India dead and swept away roads, bridges and buildings.
