On Sunday, a Himalayan glacier caused an avalanche in northern India with a deadly domino effect.
The massive glacier fell into a river, causing a flash flood that crashed through two dams in India’s Uttarakhand state. At least 32 people were killed. Another 200-plus are still missing and feared dead. Rescue efforts are ongoing.
Erik Morsehead with Mission India says, “It’s a very remote area in northern India. So rescuers had to be helicoptered in and a lot of heroic stuff taking place.… But obviously, as a whole, it’s extremely sad and unfortunate that this is taking place.”
Mission India empowers the local Church in India to be the hands and feet of Christ through various ministry programs and occasional relief efforts.
