According to Reuters, Floods triggered by days of heavy rain in Odisha have killed 45 people and left more than 300,000 people cut off from basic services, government officials said on Monday. More than 300 villages in the state have been left surrounded by flood water, after major rivers such as the Mahanadi, burst their banks submerging large swathes of farmland, immersing roads and sweeping away bridges.
"People have taken shelter on highland and they are safe. They cannot go back home immediately because water still remains," Odisha's special relief commissioner P.K. Mohapatra told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.
Save the Children has emerged as one of the first few organizations who hit the ground and has started large-scale relief work. Their flood charity can be supported at 040-49100222 or by visiting bit.ly/OdishaFloods
