Flood waters are receding in Kerala, India after one of the worst floods in almost a 100 years in southern India.
Dr. Daniel Johnson with Gospel for Asia (GFA) calls Kerala home. He lives and works there, but he has never seen anything like this devastating flood.
GFA founder, Dr. K.P. Yohannan agrees, “I have never seen rain like this in my life.”
“No matter which way I look, it is like I am surrounded by an ocean of water. Many have escaped with only the clothes on their backs. To rebuild and restore what has been lost will take time,” Yohannan said at the height of the flooding.
Yohannan reports it has claimed the lives of at least 410 people since June and has left a million people homeless, putting thousands in shelters and relief camps.
