Updated : March 06, 2019 04:32 PM IST

Among severe weather events, lightning strikes claimed the most number of lives in India over a 13-year-period, a new study has found.
The largest share of extreme weather-related deaths occurred in the central region of India. The most lives lost from lightning are from central and eastern India.
The contribution of deaths linked to severe weather during 2001-2014 to the burden of diseases is very small, but it has far-reaching consequences with regards to the economy.
