Americares India has deployed medical teams to treat survivors in Maharashtra after heavy monsoon rains pummeled the region, triggering devastating landslides and flooding that have killed over 100 people and displaced thousands of others.

Maharashtra has been hit by the heaviest July rainfall in four decades, experts say. Days of downpours have made roads impassable and restricted access to villages across the state.
