Por Olivia Rosario Rodríguez

A video shows the dangerous crossing several cars made before the water covered the bridge. A spokesman for the Information Department of the Government of Kerala, Pratheesh D. Mony, confirmed the death toll and placed 724,649 people who are refugees in the 5,645 emergency camps authorized by the authorities in the region. Saddly, the flood death toll rose to 370.

An astonishing video began to circulate last week showing the furiousness of a river in India about to flood a bridge while it was crossed by several drivers. It ocuurred in the Muthirapuzha River, the main tributary of the Periyar River, the longest river in the state of Kerala in southern India. It was recorded by Jojo Varghese on August 14.

The Indian Meteorological Department withdrew the red alert that prevailed over almost all the districts of Kerala and replaced it with a yellow alert, when the rains stopped and the water level started to recede. Thousands of troops from the Navy, the Air Force, the Army or the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) participate in the rescue and operations to evacuate the trapped to relief camps.

They have dozens of helicopters and planes and hundreds of boats, according to a note.According to government sources the focus should now be on the provision of emergency aid such as food, water and medicine, and the restoration of essential services such as electricity, gasoline, telecommunications and transportation, as the water recedes from the floods.

With the international airport of Cochin, the regional capital, closed for days due to flooding, the authorities have enabled the INS Garuda Kochi naval airfield for the landing and takeoff of commercial flights.he office of the Minister of Defense, Nirmala Sitharaman, has confirmed in her Twitter account the arrival of the first flight, from the state airline Air India, to the naval base.

Landslides and floods are common in the monsoon season in South Asia, where every year, in addition to victims, significant material damage occurs. In addition to India, Nepal also suffers from severe floods today. Between May and June, more than a thousand people died and another 635 were injured in India by natural and meteorological disasters such as floods or lightning strikes, according to data presented by the Indian Deputy Minister of the Interior, Kiren Rijiju, in the Indian Parliament.
