Kerala is still under heavy rain and the situation is expected to get worse according to media reports. On Thursday the Indian Air Force and Army relief and rescue teams distribute food packets to victims of floods and landslides, the worst in a century.
Yesterday, flood victims were sent to safer areas in the southern Indian state of Kerala.
Rescue teams are carrying out round-the-clock operation but many people in the state are still marooned. Airforce helicopters resume their relief and rescue operations this Friday morning to an estimated three lakh people now living in relief camps. With the transport facilities disrupted and roads cut off, now many areas are facing fuel shortage and the situation is dramatic in hospital with a shortage of medicines.
But those who are affected can still count on volunteers who offered their home as shelter to flood survivors. The Met office had forecast more rain for the next two days. Indian Prime minister, Narendra Modi will undertake an aerial survey of the flood-ravaged areas on Saturday.
