According to reports, Gurugram, a satellite city of New Delhi, received 20 millimeters of rain in a 24-hour period. Images of submerged cars on the city's flooded roadways have been shared on social media and on television news outlets.

Heavy storms and severe rains on Saturday, September 24 reportedly led to landslides and roof collapses in certain areas of India.

12 of the 36 fatalities were caused by the landslide, while a few more died in the floods.

At least 24 persons have died as a result of the roofs of multiple residential structures collapsing in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh due to heavy rainfall.

In India's Uttar Pradesh state, where it has been raining for the past week, 39 people have reportedly died.

Heavy rains are predicted in various Indian states' residents over the next few days, according to reports citing the meteorology department in India.

Earlier, in many southern and central provinces of Afghanistan, torrential rains also caused fatalities and the destruction of many crops, agricultural fields, animals, and fruitful gardens.

Natural disasters in the region continuously menaced countries leaving numerous people dead, injured and most of all, displaced and homeless.
