A bad situation just gets worse as waters continue to rise in India

Floods in northeast India worsened on Tuesday (July 16) with incessant rain swelling already raging rivers, inundating villages and a national park as 1,000 soldiers were deployed to rescue people fleeing the rising waters. Heavy early monsoon rain has lashed parts of South Asia since last week, killing at least 119 people and forcing more than five million people from their homes in India, Nepal and Bangladesh.
