Rescuers search for 200 missing after deadly glacier burst in India

Rescuers searched for at least 200 people missing in the Indian Himalayas on Monday, including some trapped in a tunnel, after a part of a glacier broke away, sending a torrent of water, rock and dust down a mountain valley, according to local officials.

Sunday’s violent surge below Nanda Devi, India’s second-highest peak, swept away a small hydro electric project called Rishiganga and damaged a bigger one further downstream the Dhauliganga river being built by state-firm NTPC.

The bodies of 12 people have been recovered, officials said.

Rescue squads were focused on drilling their way through a 2.5 km long tunnel at the Tapovan Vishnugad hydropower project site that NTPC was building five kilometers downstream where about 30 workers were believed trapped.

It was not immediately clear what had set off the avalanche at this time of year, with freezing temperatures and no rain.
