With the death toll on a constant rise, thousands of houses destroyed, lakhs of people left homeless and seeking shelter in relief camps and scores missing; the situation in the wake of the deadly Kerala floods is only turning nightmarish with each passing day. Reuters Amid this crisis, we can't stop ourselves from saluting the Indian Navy, the NDRF and the local police for tirelessly working day and night to rescue the people stuck in deep waters. Thanks to the regular updates by the Indian Navy, we can witness the bravery and the courage with which their personnel are carrying out the rescue missions, and the risks they are taking to ensure people's safety. #OpMadad #KeralaFloods2018 #KeralaFloodRelief Some snapshots of Rescue efforts 1/n pic.twitter.com/TzH0hcag7b — SpokespersonNavy (@indiannavy) August 16, 2018 A few days ago, we saw how Naval rescue chopper pilot Cdr Vijay Varma and his men rescued a pregnant woman (whose water bag broke) from the rooftop of her house near Aluva. In another daring mission an 80-year-old woman was airlifted from a narrow rooftop. A pregnant lady with water bag leaking has been airlifted and evacuated to Sanjivani. Doctor was lowered to assess the lady.

To express their gratitude to the Indian Navy, someone painted a giant 'Thanks' on the rooftop, from where Cdr Varma rescued two women on August 17. The official Twitter account of Indian Navy posted these pictures. #OpMadad #KeralaFloodRelief #KeralaFloods2018 A Thank You note painted on the roof of a house where the Naval ALH piloted by Cdr Vijay Varma rescued two women.

Meanwhile, people from across the country are coming together to help the flood victims in every possible way, be it by setting up relief camps, donating money and by providing necessary relief materials like ration, biscuits, medicines, milk, water and other necessary toiletries.
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsThe flood situation in Kerala has gone out of hand and while the death toll continues to rise, the nation is buckling up to help in whatever way possible. While our celebs are coming forward and urging people to help, the real heroes are the people who are actually out there and genuinely helping people in need. A video of an Indian Navy officer airlifting a drowning kid in Kerala has gone viral on social media and the amount of respect the officer is gaining for this heroic deed is unimaginably high. #OpMadad #KeralaFloodRelief #keralafloods Flight Diver Amit rescues a small child from Aluva.
