As water recedes, people leave relief camps for home in Kerala

As the rain waters have started receding in many districts in the state, more people have been leaving the relief camps for their homes. More than 10 lakh people were replaced and brought into relief camps after the worst-flood-in-decades wreaked havoc in the state last week.

According to the official records, the flood claimed the lives of more than 300 people in the state. The chief minister has scheduled a video conferencing with collectors and police superintends to review the damages caused by the floods.

In the meeting, the chief minister and other participants are expected to review the measures for the construction works after the floods in the state.

As the schools in the state are being opened on Wednesday after the vacation, relief camps operating in schools have been directed to be shifted to other alternative buildings. The matter is expected to be discussed in the meeting. The Alappuzha district has more relief camps operating in schools.

Meanwhile, the relief and cleaning operations are still going on in the worst affected areas in the state. More people are expected to leave the camps after their houses are cleaned as the water has started to recede in many places.
