Global News published this video item, entitled “Residents in flood-hit eastern India use boats to commute” – below is their description.
Floods from heavy rains in several eastern Indian states forced residents out of their homes as whole streets and residential areas were submerged in rain water on Monday.
Footage from the eastern state of Bihar showed an overflowing Ganges river and, in West Bengal, water flooded homes and people were wading through waist-high flood water while others used boats to commute.
Last month, more than 150,000 people were left homeless in the aftermath of Cyclone Yaas that unleashed storm surges in eastern India and Bangladesh, with heavy rains hampering relief work in some low-lying coastal areas.
The storm arrived as the country has been grappling with a deadly second wave of coronavirus infections that has stretched the health-care system to breaking point.

In meteorology, a cyclone is a large scale air mass that rotates around a strong center of low atmospheric pressure. Cyclones are characterized by inward spiraling winds that rotate about a zone of low pressure and typically bring winds, rain, high waves and storm surges to the areas they pass.
In the Atlantic and the northeastern Pacific oceans, a tropical cyclone is generally referred to as a hurricane (from the name of the ancient Central American deity of wind, Huracan), in the Indian and south Pacific oceans it is called a cyclone, and in the northwestern Pacific it is called a typhoon.
