India: Floods In Kerala, 324 Death Toll & Rising. Here's How You Can Help!

in india •  4 months ago

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.

Thank you! :)

Kerala is a heavenly place where Mother Nature did not spare her generosity.
It is sad to see these images and know that the population is going through such a situation.

Situation is worse in Kerala. Let's do the possible things together.

Yes, the flood situation in the state of Kerala is really grim. Many people lost their lives and property. I would like to thank @firepower for circulating the news and providing the link to support the state Kerala in this situation.

Too much trouble shared a post. Your post has fallen out of my eyes for reading this post. Those who have been affected or killed by the danger they may go to heaven. I pray from my heart.I love the Indian province so much so that so many people died that I have a lot of trouble, sir is suffering so much that can help a lot because we are not Bangladeshi we can do anything

I appeal to all to send funds and help those who are affected if possible, directly.

we in kerala need food, vegetables, clothes, medicines and other essential items asap. please do not send money to officials because it wont reach the people.

I am one whose land has been flooded so I know how bad it is. This is just my opinion. It will take days to get pure drinking water....

please send your funds..........

thanks for your post please help the victims of the flood

This is so sad. I am with Kerala people. I am going to donate my one day salary to the state government disaster fund. My office colleagues are also planning the same thing. Perhaps our little efforts may save someone's life.
I also salute army, rescue workers and everyone who is working for flood relief work there. May God show mercy on flood affected people.

@draboq is posting some interesting medical facts on Steemit, I am the first guy to do so, i hope you enjoy
