    9/04/2014, 8:49:40 AM

    A monsoonal low has produced extreme rainfall across parts of northwest India and Pakistan over the past 24 hours and will continue through Friday.

    Areas across northern Pakistan have received 200-350 millimeters (8-14 inches) of rain through Thursday afternoon, local time.

    At least 18 people have already died across the region according to the Associated Press.

    A bus carrying more than 50 people was swept away by flood waters in Kashmir, India. The bus was carrying people from a wedding, including the bride and groom.

    The flooding is the worst to hit the area in 22 years which has forced many schools to close. Train service has always been stopped in the Kashmir valley.

    All of the confirmed deaths have been from drowning or mudslides across the region.

    Heavy rain and flooding will continue in these areas through Friday before diminishing over the weekend.
