Appealing for Emergency Flood Relief in Kerala State Of India
The recent south west mosoon in the months of July-September -2019, in the state of Kerala in South India was the worst one the history has ever known. Last year in 2018 the same state was totally submerged in water killing people, damaging houses, lands and every thing possible and again this year the worst. Nearly 2,70 lakh peopla were sheltered in 1325, temroray relief camps across the state.
Killer Landslides;- The state of Kerala is called as "God's Own Country" because this state is like the land of " Promised Land".of Zion, fulll of rain forests, where there are high range hills, dense forests, Where, there are coffee, coco, tea, cordamom, pineapple, pepper, clove and other precies estates exists. Lots of coconut trees, banana plantations, tappioka, ginger, elephant foot, areconut, and many precious things are grown. The monsoon season begins during the first week of June and ends in December.
These high range forests take in, drink and suck all rain waters and store it in it's belly and no one; even scientifically can predict, when this storage will bust with such a dynomite bang and spew out millions of gallons of water with un immaginable force. The immeasurable current of this water carries with it huge rock boulders, huge logs of trees, houses, trees, plantations, bridges and roads and what not.
Totally in 70 places these landslides happened. "Kavalppara" near Nilambur in Malapuram District of Kerala, and "Meppadi" in Wynad District-Kerala are the two worst hit places where two large civilization got sunk in 6 meteres mud and debris. More than 100 dead bodies have been discovered and others are counted as missiong.
People who esxcaped this peril and death are literally on the streets.
