As many as 10 civilians have died and 82 people, including 22 Army personnel, are missing after a cloudburst over the Lhonak Lake in north Sikkim caused it to overflow, triggering flash floods in the Teesta river. A government official said 14 bridges have collapsed and over 3,000 tourists are feared stranded in different parts of the state. The cloudburst occurred in the early hours of Wednesday and the swirling waters swept away parts of a dam at Chungthang, which is the state's largest hydropower project, worsening the flooding downstream.
