Kerala flood survivors face 'great struggle' to rebuild lives

August 23, 2018

More than one million people remain sheltered in temporary relief camps, officials say, as flood waters begin to recede.

People in India's flood-ravaged state of Kerala are facing a "great struggle to rebuild their lives", local officials have warned, as high waters that have killed hundreds of people and displaced more than a million others start to recede. 

Rescue teams searched throughout the southern state on Wednesday for survivors stranded during the area's worst flooding for a century.

Torrential monsoon rains from the end of May onwards have forced an estimated 1.2 million people to shelter inside makeshift relief camps, according to government figures.
