Kerala rains have brought a lot of destruction with them this year. The state is in turmoil since August 8, with people stranded, houses destroyed, and relief camps flooding as badly as the state itself.
More than half of Kerala was swept away by the water overflown from damn reservoirs and rivers due to heavy and continuous rainfalls. The disaster left around 54,000 people homeless and 29 dead, according to the latest reports.

As the water in Periyar River rose, the Army was employed in the evacuation and rescue missions, making make-shift bridges to save lives. Even the Indian Navy in southern parts was put to alert because of the floods. Right now, there is red alert in 8 districts of Kerala.

Floods have also brought landslides with them causing even major havoc at various northern and central districts of Kerala. Among the victims are not only the inhabitants of Kerala, but several tourists and foreigners too. TOI reports the rescue of 50 tourists and 24 foreigners who were stranded at Plum Judy Resort for 3 days.

The Government of India has helped the state with Disaster Management teams making more and more relief camps and helping the victims. Various services, like that of Cochin Airport fortunately, have not been affected.

All we can do is wish for the well-being of the victims of Kerala floods and hope everything is under the control of the government.
