Emergency aid to flood-stricken India

In India, the death toll from the floods and landslides caused by heavy monsoon rainfall has reached 500. IHH launched an emergency aid operation in the region, and initially delivered aid to 36 thousand 543 victims.

The death toll in the India’s Kerala state, that experienced the most devastating floods and landslides in a century, has reached 500. 30 people are missing due to the floods. In the region where the search and rescue operations are continuing, 130 homes were affected by the floods and residents were evacuated to collection centers. The number of people in these evacuation centers has reached 1 million.

As the intense rainfall caused the flooding of dams and rivers, main roads and bridges were also destroyed. 32 thousand 500 hectares of agricultural land were destroyed in the floods. Snakes that have moved to residential areas to escape the floods are another problem for the Indian people. Indian officials estimated the storm damage in the state to be 3 billion dollars.
