The Storm Prediction Centre received 30 tornado reports on Monday night. Based on these reports, there appear to be at least two long-track storms that produced tornadoes through southeast Wyoming and western Nebraska.

India – Eight people were killed and six went missing in floods triggered by heavy rainfall in Mizoram even as hot weather conditions prevailed in Delhi, where mercury crossed the 40 degrees Celsius mark again. Flash floods wrecked havoc at Tlabung in Mizoram’s Lunglei district, while National Highway 54, which which links the state with Assam, was cut off at different places due to landslides in many districts. As many as 350 houses have submerged since Monday in different parts of the state in the flash floods. Landslides and incessant rains have blocked several roads in Aizawl town, and power supply lines were snapped and telecommunication system was disrupted in the state capital.
