People have lost thier lives, houses and belongings, people who are stranded in various parts of the state are being rescued by the government and many volunteers and are made to stay in various relief camps across the state.
Now as the intensity of the rains have come down there is a sign of relief. But there is a heavy demand for the basic needs like foods, clothes, medicines, disinfectants etc and also shortage of the same.
