Kerala Flood Relief
Kerala has been reeling under massive floods since 1924 and more than 70 have lost their lives, while over 1 lakh people have been rendered homeless and sought refuge with no sign of the rains dying down.
Boats have been deployed across the state to reach thousands of people stranded by floodwater, and fishermen had been asked to help with rescue efforts.
Officials announced the entire state was subject to a red alert Wednesday, the highest level, indicating the extent of the disaster which has forced tens of thousands of people to seek shelter in relief camps.Railway and road transport have been all but halted with railway tracks and roads submerged under water. Operations at the international airport in the city of Kochi have been suspended until Saturday due to flooding.I
