Hundreds of lifes lost, Many a thousand of people left homeless, the gods own country Kerala is witnessing the worst floods in the history of the state.
Even though the national media is turning a blind eye towards the disaster struck state,the state governement and the people of Kerala have shown remarkable determination and care in tackling the unforeseen situation
“We’re witnessing something that has never happened before in the history of Kerala,” Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan told the media.
The state has been experiencing heavy rainfall that has resulted in 41 dams filling to capacity. Water had to be periodically released from all 41 of these dams which has resulted in severe flooding in low-lying areas.
Entire state (14 districts) was subjected to a red alert which indicates the highest level of any disaster,which led thousands of people to abandon their homes and seek shelter in relief camps.
Over 40000 people are being occupied by relief shelters in Eranakulam district itself, More than 1,50,000 disaster struck, ailing human beings are finding refuge in relief shelters across Kerala.
Kerala is doing its best to find,rescue and shelter the people stranded by the disaster

The next big challenge in front of the state is to provide for the disaster struck people living in relief shelters.
People in the camps include those people who have seen their loved ones die, savings of an entire lifetime being washed away, Debris and havoc. It’s all trauma and hopelessness in their lives.
