Nearly 70 people have died in the last week in Odisha and Telangana as a heat wave swept the country. It's the hottest April in five years, says the Met department, and predicts that it will get worse as the summer deepens, Indian media reports.

The severe drought and acute water shortage across the country has added to worries about a difficult summer.

The government of India has said that the water storage in 91 major water reservoirs in the country has dipped to a 10-year low of about 23 per cent.

The heatwave has started to grip parts of peninsular India including Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra's Marathwada and Vidarbha and isolated pockets of Karnataka.
