Days after heavy rain caused severe flooding across India's Andhra Pradesh state, residents are still battling floodwaters.

During the deluge, floodwaters burst the banks of rivers, inundated thousands of homes, uprooted trees and electricity poles, and washed roads and railway lines away.

Four days after the worst of the rains stopped, many districts are still waterlogged and without electricity.

Thousands of homes have been damaged, more than a thousand are still underwater to some extent and thousands of people have been displaced to emergency camps.

Train services have also been impacted, with widespread cancellations due to damage to tracks.

Forty people have been killed in flooding related incidents so far in the state.

Fresh rain has caused panic amongst residents, with heavy rains expected to lash the southern districts of Nellore, Chittoor, Prakasam, Kadapa, and Anantapur, from November 26 to December 2.
