Over 1 million people displaced by massive flooding in Kerala
Devastating floods have killed more than 400 people and engulfed entire towns in a southern state in India.
A total of 10,28,000 people have been sheltered in 3,274 camps in the flood-hit districts, chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan said on Monday while tonnes of emergency aid poured in from all over the country.
The massive flood in Kerala has been declared a calamity of severe nature, the Union home ministry said on Monday.
“Keeping in view the intensity and magnitude of floods and landslides in Kerala this is a calamity of severe nature for all practical purposes,” a home ministry official said.
