Hundreds of people have been killed and thousands left homeless after the worst floods in a century hit Kerala in India.

At least 324 people have died and more than 223,000 people have been rendered homeless and placed in relief camps.

Monsoon rains have unleased devastating flooding and landslides in the state.

Flood waters have submerged some homes and the homeless have been accommodated in 1,568 relief camps across the state.

Damage to the roads and highways is hampering relief operations as flood waters have washed a number of roads while landslides have caused blockage.

The rail networks have also been affected badly with many trains being cancelled.

The Indian Meteorological Department said heavy rains will continue, but the intensity has lessened slightly.
