Heavy rain caused flood waters to sweep through cities along India's Ganges river on Saturday in northern Uttar Pradesh state.

Footage showed severe water-logging in various parts of the industrial city of Kanpur and the temple town of Varanasi.

Uttar Pradesh state chief announced that facilities had been put in place to help civilians affected by the high water levels.

More than 1,500 people have died so far this year across the country due to storms, floods and landslides.
