TEHRAN, August 4 - Flood waters have swept through cities located along India's Ganges River, wreaking havoc for residents of the country's northern Uttar Pradesh state.

TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - Uttar Pradesh state chief, Yogi Adityanath, conducted an aerial survey of flood-hit areas on Saturday and announced that facilities had been put in place to help civilians affected by the high water.

Incessant rains over the past few weeks have caused flooding in hundreds of villages and displaced thousands of people in the country's most populous state. More than 1,500 people have died so far this year across the country due to storms, floods and landslides. The majority of government actions in India tend to focus on relief, with weak prevention programs.
