The Indian state of Kerala has witnessed historic flooding due to continuing rains which have been ongoing for several days. Vigorous monsoon rains have left a trail of destruction across Kerala, killing more than four hundred people since August 16th.
This monsoon has led to increased water levels in many dams and reservoirs in Kerala. Regions, especially in northern and central Kerala, have witnessed extremely difficult situations causing loss of life, property, and hope for thousands.
The flooding has damaged infrastructure, agricultural lands, and houses. About one million people are in relief camps.
“In Central Kerala and surrounding areas, waters from 36 dams have contributed to flooding in the plains and a red alert has been declared in all states of Kerala. Such rainfall has not been witnessed in the history of Kerala.” – Jaison Thomas
