INDIA-WEATHER-FLOOD

Residents look on as wrecked vehicles lie in front of damaged houses in Sonprayag on July 2, 2013, in a flood affected area of the northern Indian state of Uttrakhand. Construction along river banks will be banned in a devastated north Indian state amid concerns unchecked development fuelled last month's flash floods and landslides that killed thousands, the state's top official said. The Chief Minister of Uttarakhand, Vijay Bahuguna, also announced that a regulatory body would be set up to scrutinise future construction as the Himalayan state begins the herculean task of rebuilding following the June 15 floods.
