Ten people were killed and 125 are still missing, and feared dead, after a glacier break at Joshimath in Uttarakhand's Chamoli district triggered massive flooding of the Alaknanda and Dhauliganga rivers on Sunday. Many villages were evacuated as floods damaged homes and the nearby NTPC power plant, while washing away a small hydro power project near Rishiganga. National and state disaster response teams have been deployed. The Army sent six columns and the Navy seven diving teams. Arrangements have been made so rescue teams can work round-the-clock. Prime Minister Narendra Modi said: "India stands with Uttarakhand and the nation prays for everyone's safety."
