Got an audio clip in malayalam stating that the need of the hour in most relief camps now is clothes and basic toiletaries like soap & toothpaste and not food. So anyone sending supplies, keep this in mind.

Along with food. Food is in shortage in most relief camps due to the sheer number of people getting admitted.

Bubble wrap, cardboard boxes too if you donating stuff that requires to be airdropped.

ORS, medicines, bleaching powder are required too.

Mathrubhumi reports that 11 districts except TVM, Kollam, and Kasaragod are under red alert.

Kollam and Kasaragod under yellow alert.

Heavy rains are expected and it may continue till 22 August.

A new depression that formed near Odisha coast could be the reason.

Slightly contradicting report from 'The TamilNadu Weatherman' and for the sake of the people of Kerala and Kodagu - I hope he is right.

Was amazed to see the sheer number of people donating stuff at multiple camps. They had requested cooked food to be in small packs so that it could be easily distributed and can be stored for later use.

At many junctions, could see many people offering free milk/eggs etc (which are almost not available here). Proud to be living here.

In the other news - Rain has completely stopped from afternoon and also the sun is out .

I was at D-Mart in Ecity Bangalore today morning to buy relief materials to send by today evening truck. I saw good number of people (youngsters and families) buying relief supplies. Felt very happy about it, hope rain reduces and life is back to normal soon.

Request everyone to donate to rebuild the state.

Not saying you are wrong, buddy. Could be the situation in different relief camps. Many friends involved were reporting that food is still a shortage too.

Feeling heavy at heart looking at what is happening in Kerala and Kodagu. Hope things will change for the better soon.

Many Mysoreans are already doing their bit to help people in distress. The City corporation has also come out with the following notification to coordinate collection and distribution of relief materials. Please circulate among your friends/acquaintances in Mysuru.
