  • Description

    WIDESPREAD MONSOON FLOODING HAS HIT SEVERAL INDIAN STATES IN THE PAST FORTNIGHT, AND THE DEATH TOLL IS BELIEVED TO BE NEARLY 200, WITH THOUSANDS HOMELESS.

    AMONG THE WORST-HIT AREAS HAVE BEEN MYSORE, KERALA, RAJASTHAN, HARYANA AND WEST BENGAL. SWIRLING RIVERS BROKE THEIR BANKS AFTER NEARLY SEVEN DAYS OF CONTINUOUS RAIN AND TORRENTS POURED INTO VILLAGES AND COVERED AGRICULTURAL AREAS.

    AT ONE STAGE, MORE THAN 100,000 PEOPLE WERE HOMELESS AND THOUSANDS OF ACRES OF STANDING CROPS WERE UNDER WATER.

    THE INDIAN GOVERNMENT HAS MADE FUNDS AVAILABLE TO PROVIDE ACCOMMODATION, FOOD AND MEDICAL SUPPLIES FOR THE HOMELESS.
