Dozens of people have been killed and thousands moved to relief camps after torrential rains caused flooding in northern India's Uttar Pradesh state, according to officials.

Sandhaya Kureel, a spokeswoman of the Disaster Management and Relief Department, gave The Associated Press news agency a death toll of 59.

Kureel said most of the fatalities were caused by house collapses, lightning and drowning in Uttar Pradesh. At least five people also died of snake bites in flooded areas.
