With no help in sight, Kerala people requesting Social Media for Rescue

As heavy rains continue to lash Kerala and several parts witness increasing inundation, social media platforms are flooded with SOS (save of souls) video messages from people who are forced to take refuge on the terraces and top floors of their houses. Meanwhile with increasing rains, flood waters have entered houses in several districts, including Pathanamthitta and Alappuzha.



Presently this has forced many residents, including children, pregnant women and the elderly, to shift to the top floors and terraces of their houses. Accordingly many have been stranded there for a few days now without food, water, electricity and barely any charge left on their cell phones. Furthermore as calls to control rooms go unanswered, people continue to wait for the rescue operation teams to provide them with boat or airlift services and relocate them to a safer place.

Moreover in one video, a man from Chengannur can be heard asking for immediate help. “Dear people, we are stranded in a two storey house near KTDC Sarathy Hotel and added people in several houses here too are stranded. Since last evening, we are told that the Navy will come to our rescue; but, until now, nobody has come to our rescue. We probably have only one hour to be rescued or live, as the flood water has reached the first storey.” Moreover in another video, a woman is seen requesting officials to rescue her family from her house near Malakkara on Chengannur-Kozhenchery route.
