Indian Civil Defence volunteers warn people not try to catch floating pumpkins, water melons and other objects from the rising waters of the Yamuna river in New Delhi on June 19, 2013. The monsoon, which India's farming sector depends on, covers the subcontinent from June to September, usually bringing some flooding. But the heavy rains arrived early this year, catching many by surprise and exposing the country's lack of preparedness. Military helicopters dropped emergency supplies to thousands of tourists and pilgrims stranded by flash floods that tore through towns and temples in northern India, killing at least 120 people, officials said.
