City sinking in India

Hundreds of people have been moved to shelters in India after the land has been sinking causing cracks in buildings, homes, and roads.

A temple has collapsed in Joshimath, a city in northern India, and there is damage to at least 600 homes.

The area serves as a gateway to several Himalayan mountain climbing expeditions.

The cause of the sinking land might be due to a faulty drainage system according to local officials.

No injuries have been reported thus far.

Local residents say that cracks have been appearing in some homes since floods in 2021.
