Heavy rains and flooding killed at least 35 people in the southern Indian state of Andhra Pradesh and left nearly 100 children stranded on the roof of their school, a top government official said Saturday. The worst affected district in the state was Kurnool where 21 people died, state Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy told reporters before leaving for an aerial survey of the affected areas. The other deaths took place in Prakasham, Guntur and Krishna districts, Reddy said. Most people were killed when flash floods destroyed homes and swept them away, he added.
