Heavy, continuous rains hit life in several north India states and wrought havoc in Uttarakhand where the death toll has reached 29 while thousands were stranded after landslides, officials said Monday. With more rains expected, the situation is likely to worsen in the hill state while flood warnings have been issued in Uttar Pradesh and Delhi.

Ten deaths, including five members of a family, were reported from Himachal Pradesh while 1,500 tourists, mainly from West Bengal, remained stranded in remote Kinnaur district after incessant rainfall triggered landslides.
