Aug 20, 2018 - Kerala, India (MCID-120-18-19)
Kerala faced severe floods in August 2018, one of the worst disasters the state has seen in a century. Unprecedented rains led to all the dams being filled beyond capacity, and the shutters of 35 dams were opened simultaneously leading to flooding and landslides in many parts of Kerala.

Over 350 lives were lost, hundreds of homes were damaged completely and over a million people were moved to relief camps. Kerala is still reeling from the impact of floodwaters that covered most of the state for over a week. Many areas will remain under water for over a month. There is major loss of cattle and crops, buildings and businesses, affecting the livelihood of many people.
