Rescue workers in southern India are still scrambling to deliver aid
and assistance to victims of the widespread flooding that has killed
more than 250 people.
Flood waters continue to recede in Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka states,
following a break in the heavy rains. But with hundreds of thousands of
people now living in temporary shelters, health workers are focusing on
preventing illnesses from breaking out among the survivors.
Residents in some areas complain that food and aid have been slow to
arrive. Authorities are also worried that hundreds of thousands of
hectares of flooded farmland could affect food harvests.
More rain is forecast in the coming days.
