According to ancient Vaishnava legends the Vedic Deva , Indra (god of rain & lightning) was feared by human beings because he would either give the people no rain or flood them if he was not satisfied with their worship.

This made Indra angry at the boy Krishna (one of the incarnations of the Supreme God
Indra thus invoked many clouds to appear in the sky and schemed to flood the region with rains lasting for seven days and seven nights.
