Kerala Floods


A destroyed house post the Kerala Floods of 2018.

A total of 4.08 lakh houses were partially damaged and 16,796 houses were fully damaged in the floods. The worst affected were the low-lying regions like Kuttanad in Alappuzha district and the Mundrothuruthu delta island in Kollam district*.

For a house, for a way of life to be destroyed, all you need is 3 feet water. Everything you own - your home, your bed, your almirah - everything exists within this 3 feet. Above the 3 feet, all you have are walls. Even if just 3 feet of water enters your house, the life that you’ve created for yourself after years of hard work can be easily destroyed.
