At least 324 people have been killed in flooding in the southern Indian state of Kerala in what local officials say is the worst flooding in 100 years.
 
India's monsoon season started in June, but the death toll in Kerala has soared in the past 24 hours.
 
Rescuers are battling torrential rains to save residents, with more than 200,000 people left homeless in camps.
 
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has arrived in the state to see the devastation for himself.
 
The Kerala government said many of those who died had been crushed under debris caused by landslides.
 
With more rains predicted and a red alert in place, Kerala's main airport is expected to remain shut until 26 August.
 
Hundreds of troops have been deployed to rescue those caught up in the flooding.
