At least 29 persons died in the past two days in incessant rains in Uttar Pradesh where major rivers were in spate.
The flood situation aggravated in Assam, with the Brahmaputra and its tributaries wreaking havoc in 20 districts displacing more than two million people. Swollen rivers, flowing above the red mark, claimed three more lives as the toll in the current wave of floods in the State mounted to 20.
In Bihar, where 21 persons have so far died in the floods, major rivers were rising menacingly along their courses.
Sharp showers lashed eastern, central and western Uttar Pradesh. Most of the northern region received a fresh spell of rain early today claiming four lives in Haryana and dipping the mercury considerably.
