REUTERS/StringerNEW DELHI, July 13 (Reuters) - At least two people were dead and 10 missing after heavy rains in a hilly northern Indian state triggered landslides and flash floods that destroyed homes, damaged roads and swept away cars, a senior government official said on Tuesday.
"Rescue work there is ongoing," Jindal told Reuters via telephone.
The fast-moving flood waters ripped away buildings' foundations and threatened to wash away roads.
In another area, flood waters had damaged several homes abutting a stream, forcing residents out on the streets.
