This dramatic video captures the moment a two-storey house in India collapsed as cloudbursts wreaked havoc - with the building disappearing from sight in just six seconds.
A camera filmed residents on the street in Uttarkashi watching as the house toppled down a river bank in the northern state of Urrarakhand as monsoon rains battered the area, triggering landslides, flash floods and cloudbursts throughout the region.
Reports in India said at least 26 people had been killed in flash floods in the Uttarkashi district yesterday, with nearly 40 others reported as missing.
The two storey house seen here looked to topple backwards down the bank of the Bhagirathi River, one of the source streams for the Ganges, exposing its foundations as residents looked on in horror.
The house crashes down the bank amid the noise of the swirling winds and rain.
India's monsoon season runs from June to September, with the country braced for unpredictable rains.
