New Delhi (CNN)Dozens of people have been killed, and tens of thousands more evacuated, after “unprecedented” flash flooding in a tourist hotspot in southern India.
At least 37 people have died since heavy monsoonal rains first struck the state of Kerala on Wednesday, the state’s relief commissioner P.H. Kurian told CNN on Sunday.
The area, located on the tropical Malabar Coast, is famed for its network of idyllic waterways.
