Yahoo! News: Death Toll From India Monsoon Almost 700:

Rescuers scouring flood-ravaged neighborhoods and outlying villages found dozens of new bodies on Friday, pushing the death toll from record monsoon rains in western India to almost 700, officials said.

Some 370 of the dead were from Bombay and the surrounding area in Maharashtra state, said N. Nayar, an official at the government’s emergency control room in Bombay.

India’s financial hub was pounded by two days of unusually heavy monsoon rains this week, including one day marked the heaviest single day of monsoons in India since record keeping began a century and a half ago.
