A multi-day cloudburst centered on the North Indian state of Uttarakhand caused devastating floods and landslides becoming the country`s worst natural disaster since the 2004 tsunami. Though some parts of Himachal Pradesh, Haryana, Delhi and Uttar Pradesh in India experienced the flood. More than a dozen helicopters have been deployed in Uttarakhand for relief and rescue operations in the state and all stranded people are expected to be evacuated soon.
