Tourists were evacuated from the popular Kempty falls in Uttarakhand's Mussoorie after a dramatic gush of water on Sunday evening after a day of incessant rain.
The police helped rescue tourists after there was a sudden rise in water flow at Kempty falls. Water even surged into shops in the area.
The 40-feet waterfall in Mussoorie had seen a rise in water level also on July 27, during another bout of rainfall in the state. Earlier in July, the waterfall was closed because of heavy rain.
The meteorological department has predicted heavy rainfall in Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh. Rain has caused widespread damage in neighbouring Uttar Pradesh, with 16 people reported dead in 16 districts of the state in 48 hours.
The most affected was Shahjahanpur, where the Air Force flew in choppers from Gwalior to help with evacuation.
The floods in Uttar Pradesh come weeks after the devastating floods that brought Kerala to its knees.
