The weather department had issued red alert in all the 14 districts of Kerala. It’s that damn serious.
Shutters of 33 dams have been opened as of now, including Mullapperiyar, Idukki, Edamalayar. Almost all the rivers and canals are overflowing. Cochin International Airport has been closed till 18th August due to the floods.
Munnar, one of the tourist attractions of Kerala has been submerged completely. KSRTC and railway have cancelled many of the bus and train services. Commute has become impossible due to broken bridges and damaged roads in many parts of the state.
Thousands of people have lost their homes, properties and lands, literally everything they had.
Though many people have been evacuated and shifted to rehabilitation camps across the state, there are some people who are still stuck at various places. Food, water, clothes, medicines, toiletries and all other necessary items are supplied by many volunteers in Kochi, Thiruvananthapuram etc to all the camps.
The government, officials, army, celebrities and common people are working together to help all the stranded people. Now, it’s our turn to help these people by contributing generously for the ones in need.
