Indian state of Kerala is in a state of emergency due to the death and destruction caused by cloudburst and heavy rains. Parts of state of Karnataka including highways leading to my city of Mangalore are badly effected due to the rage of monsoon. Kerala however is in a terrible state as the cyclonic situation has destroyed life and property leaving over 215,000 people stranded and more than 324 dead.
Massive flooding and landslides have consumed villages and destroyed thousands of home. You can search for live updates on Google. But for now I request you to take some time out of your lives and donate if you can.
