Folks

Thanks for the tremendous support pouring in. A few of my friends were stuck in Pathananthita and Parvur, but now they have managed to get out and about.

For collection of materials - i would suggest please check with your local kiranawallahs as well. I stay in RT Nagar and there are 3 small time departmental stores who have managed to send 1 truckload each of items to both Kerala and Coorg. Also, check out Thom's bakery, Fatimas bakery as they have also dispatched trucks to both areas. We have put in a number of clothing articles as well as clean up kits, disinfectants and general medicine as well such as oral salts, any versions of tablets for stomach borne diseases (lopramides) etc. I was talking to a friend of mine who is still stuck and water contamination has started off

Thanks to each and every one of you for the efforts. Here's a glimpse of how natives are trying to express their feelings.

There were major construction company that let their Taurus lorries for rescue operations, in spite of heavy vehicle damage. And tons of other tipper lorry owners.
Fishermen from far southern side, ferried their boats on lorries to reach affected area and carry out rescue operations etc, and the list goes on.
Numerous offroad vehicle owners and clubs, and the list is endless

Brilliant thinking of effective usage of available resources at the time of need.

Hundreds of trucks carrying fishing boats were plying from TVM and KLM. Some are coming back now and some still in action. Hats off to these fishermen who risked their life to save others.

That is more than what has been offered by the Central Govt. to Kerala.
Sincere thanks to them!

Are they covered by the insurance (as this falls in natural calamity, act of god...)? If yes, some insurance companies are going to become bankrupt.

Insurance companies spread the risk by collecting premiums from all year after year. They have huge reserve funds for such eventualities, which are mandated by regulatory authorities! I am sure all of them can meet this liability easily.

Maruti Suzuki has announced initiatives for its customers in Kerala:

▪ Courtesy mobility will be arranged for customers whose flood-hit cars are under repairs.

▪ A service camp will be organised for those cars after one month of the completion of repairs.
