The intense South West monsoon has created severe floods in Bihar and Assam and 15 million people, and their cattle are critically impacted. Nearly 150 people have died so far.
The deluge has wreaked large scale devastation in crop lands. Not only the daily life is interrupted, but also the livelihood is threatened for many months to come. The unprecedented amount of rain surprised everyone as it generally rains in August and not in July. May be the intensity is due to climate change and it is sad the poor are impacted disproportionately.
There is an immediate need for relief materials, medical assistance and shelter. In addition to immediate relief work, sustained rehabilitation work will be needed for many months.
