Hyderabad:  In Andhra Pradesh, at least 37 people have died in the floods, and lakhs are in relief camps across the state.

The death toll is expected to be higher as the administration currently doesn't have spare officials to count the dead. Thousands are reported missing, lakhs are still stranded.

Kurnool, Mahbubnagar, Krishna and Guntur are the worst affected districts. Overall, at least 18 lakh people in nearly 400 villages of Andhra Pradesh have been affected by the floods. 180 villages in Kurnool, 89 in Mahbubnagar, 100 in Guntur and 22 in Nalgonda are in bad shape due to the flood waters.

550 army men, 6 choppers, 1000 swimmers and 254 boats are involved in the relief work.
