Rescue teams are continuing with the search operation for fifth consecutive day amid continuous rain in a difficult terrain. Till now, they have found 50 bodies in an area where at least 80 people lived. Karpayi, 45, burst out in tears as she told NDTV how she lost 16 members of her family in seconds.
