Heavy Rains in Eastern India Flood Highway, Disrupt Movement.

Heavy rainfall in India's eastern West Midnapore district flooded a highway, Thursday, September 16, disrupting the movement of people.

The State Highway 7 was inundated as few truck and bus drivers managed to drive through the road to reach their destinations.

A local resident, Sheikh Saheb, said few were taking the risk of taking the highway road despite warnings from police.

In Midnapore, located in the state of West Bengal, water entered houses of people and damaged property.
