- This just in July 31
A mudslide killed at least 30 in a village in west India Wednesday morning, the Associated Press reports. As rescue efforts cleared through the debris on Thursday morning, authorities said that survival chances were "slim" for those still trapped in the mud.
The mudslide took over the entire 700-person village of Malin in Maharashrta's Pune district, and an additional 100 people have been reported missing. The AP reports that the mudslide was caused by "torrential rains" that lasted for two days, as the area is currently experiencing its annual monsoon season.
As of Thursday morning, 30 bodies have been found, and eight people have been rescued. At least 100 ambulances and 250 workers are involved in the rescue efforts, depicted in the images below. --Meghan DeMaria
