India Is Fighting with Floods: From October, 16 Till Now More than 25 Dead
On Saturday, 16 October 2021, India fell victim to flash floods caused by landslides in the hilly regions of Kerala and heavy rains. By the evening, rescuers found about 20 dead, but the search is still ongoing and at the moment the death toll exceeds 25 and hundreds of missing persons. What other terrible events happened due to the floods?
- Hundreds of houses collapsed and people did not have time to get out, so additional rescue teams were created to pull people out of the wreckage;
- Train and college classes were canceled until October 19-20.
- Despite the fact that the amount of precipitation has decreased, strong winds are raging, which interfere with rescue operations, so the period of the rescue operation may be extended.
The authorities have set up relief centers for flood victims, but the number of them is increasing every hour, so the authorities do not have an opportunity to react in time. That is why, international organizations have turned their attention to the situation in India and are trying to help cope with this natural disaster, which happened unexpectedly for the whole world.
