Heavy monsoon rains have killed at least 110 people in Maharashtra state in western India, with close to 90,000 evacuated. In Mahabaleshwar, Maharashtra, just under 60 cm (23 in) of rain fell in 24 hours from Thursday through Friday morning, according to the India Meteorological Department.

The deaths included 42 in the village of Taliye, near Mumbai in Maharashtra, which was destroyed in a major landslide. Chief Minister of Maharashtra Udhav Thackeray planned to visit the village on Saturday. He called for a meeting to address the emergency, and called for aid for those affected.

At least two people died and ten were injured in Mumbai on Friday when a residential building collapsed due to the rainfall. The total death toll in Mumbai numbered more than 30, including deaths from landslides and electrocution. More heavy rain is forecast. The Indian military and rescue crews are assisting as the death toll continues to rise.

In Goa, more than 1000 houses were seriously damaged. No deaths have so far been reported in the state.
