MONSOON CHEER FADES AWAYYYY

Torrential rain and floods washed away buildings and roads, killing at least 23 people in the northern Indian state of Uttarakhand, officials said Monday. More than a dozen people died in the state’s Rudraprayag district alone, while 50 people were missing, said Amit Negi, an official in Uttarakhand. At least three other people were washed away when a three-story apartment building toppled into a river and was carried away by the swift-moving current, said Amit Chandola, a government spokesman.
