According to officials with direct knowledge of the situation, at least 13 people have died as a result of separate rain-related incidents in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand over the past two days. Due to the significant rainfall that day, some districts in UP ordered the closure of the schools.

Meanwhile, a fresh round of snowfall in the higher elevations of Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh caused the temperature in the entire northern area to significantly drop on Monday. According to a statement from the India Metrological Department, the northwestern Himalayas will experience moderate to heavy rainfall until October 14.

Schools were closed in a number of locations in Uttar Pradesh, where 12 people have perished, including Lucknow, Aligarh, Meerut, Gautam Buddh Nagar, and Ghaziabad.

The floods have impacted the lives of almost 580,000 people in over 650 villages across 16 districts in Uttar Pradesh, according to the relief commissioner's office.

A 55-year-old man was killed in Uttarakhand's Almora district after debris from a landslide caused by rain fell on his home. Roads have been obstructed and water levels have risen in numerous areas of the state, particularly the Kumaon region, as a result of the recent heavy rain.
