Kerala Floods

On 15 August 2018, severe floods affected the state of Kerala, due to unusually high rainfall during the monsoon season. It was the worst flooding in Kerala in nearly a century. Over 483 people died.

At least a million people were evacuated, all 14 districts of the state were placed on red alert. According to the Kerala government, one-sixth of the total population of Kerala had been directly affected by the floods and related incidents. The Indian government had declared it a Level 3 Calamity, or “calamity of a severe nature”. It is the worst flood in Kerala after the great flood of 99 that happened in 1924. Thirty-five out of the fifty-four dams within the state were opened for the first time in history.

Silver Fox has donated money to provide supplies and our Regional Sales Manager Vishnu Nair, along with a few volunteers, helped with the cleaning service. All of the roads and buildings including hospitals and houses were covered with mud.Kerala Flood Relief
