Floods in India have killed more than a dozen people and displaced 150,000 more.

In the northern state of Punjab, thousands of acres of farmland are under water.

Rivers are flowing above the danger level and the country has had to open floodgates and release water which is flowing into Pakistan.

Many farmers say they have lost everything.
