At least 66 people were killed by lightning in India in a 24 hour period Tuesday and Wednesday. Forty-six deaths were in the northern state of Bihar, where 22 more were left injured. Twenty more were killed in the neighboring state of Uttar Pradesh.

According to VOA news, the disaster management secretary of Bihar, Viyas Ji, said the state will provide $5,900 to the families of those who lost their lives in the storm.
