Floods in India & Bangladesh

A couple of weeks ago we linked to a number of Google Maps that were concerned with the floods here in the UK. Whilst the floods in the UK have been responsible now for a number of deaths and have literally ruined many people's lives they have not been on the scale of the floods that have hit India and Bangladesh.

In Northern India and Bangladesh almost 20 million people have been displaced as some of the worst floods for years have hit. Almost 200 people have died in the floods in the last few days and the situation is likely to get far worse as the rains head south.

We have quickly thrown together a Google Map of the affected areas, along with some photos and relevant videos.
