Floods leave thousands destitute in India

More than 200 villages have been washed away leaving thousands without shelter, food or fresh water.

     

    Tens of thousands of people remain stranded in India as flood waters continue to inundate homes, leaving at least 20 people dead in the eastern state of Orissa.

    Critics have questioned what they call the government's slow response to the crisis but officials say they are doing the best they can under the circumstances.

    It will take some time before things return to normal and as the clock ticks many people are now without food or fresh water.
