A fierce dust storm has killed more than 100 people, demolished homes and displaced trees in the northern Indian states of Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan and Punjab since Wednesday.

The Agra district, home of the Taj Mahal is one of the worst affected areas and residents are bracing for another storm that’s predicted to strike in a few days.

But the residents say there's no disaster plan in place.

"The local administration has no plan in place. The reason there have been high casualties in villages is because doctors were not available at the government hospitals," says a local journalist, Manvendra Malhotra.
