At least 20 people are confirmed to have died after a landslide buried some 40 houses and trapped up to 200 people in a village in west India, officials say.
Teams of emergency workers have so far rescued 10 people in Malin village, near the city of Pune in Maharashtra state, where the disaster happened.
Rescuers trying to reach survivors are being hampered by bad weather.
The landslide hit the village early in the morning while people were sleeping
A witness has stated that it took hours to raise the alarm. A local bus driver alerted officials on discovering that Malin and the road leading to it were no longer to be seen.
The whole village except its school has been washed away or buried, our correspondent says.
Landslides are common in some parts of India during the monsoon rains, which run from June to September.
An official from India’s National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) said hilly terrain was making rescue work difficult.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi described the loss of lives in the landslide as “saddening”. He said Home Minister Rajnath Singh would travel to Pune to assess the situation.
