Rescue teams pulled out a dozen bodies after three buses were washed away in Andhra Pradesh state on Friday.
At least 18 other people were still missing, media outlet The NewsMinute reported on Saturday.
The country’s MET agency has warned of unpredictable and extreme weather across South Asia driven by climate change, exacerbated by damming, deforestation and excessive development.
The country’s Met Office said more heavy rains were expected in several southern areas on Saturday.
Dozens have died since October in India after heavy rains triggered floods and landslides.
At least 42 people were killed last month when heavy rains pummelled Kerala.
On Friday authorities in the state halted entry to Sabarimala, one of Hinduism’s holiest shrines, due to heavy rains in the area.
