Kudos to Indian Navy!
The Indian Navy is involved in the ongoing rescue operations in Flood-hit Kerala from day one. Previously in Aluva, a Navy officer managed to rescue a boy. Several other steps like providing drinking water, eatables and other items of necessity are being taken care of by our Armed Forces, who are working round the clock to deliver help.
More than three hundred people have lost their lives during this monsoon season and over two lakhs have witnessed submergence of their houses. “Kerala is facing its worst flood in 100 years. 80 dams opened, 324 lives lost and 223139 people are in about 1500+ relief camps,” said an official from the Chief Minister’s office in Kerala.
Army, Navy, Air Force and NDRF personnel have begun evacuating people stranded in the worst flood-affected areas of Ernakulam, Pathanamthitta and Thrissur districts.
