Relief India trust has recently sent a rescue team to Odisha to salvage the victims of the flood. The official toll of deaths has reached 5 whereas the unofficial is at 20. The constant inflow of rains from West Bengal has aggravated the situation and made the conditions harder for people. Relief India Trust is rescuing people from marooned villages and taking them to unaffected areas.
As much as five lakh people have been affected by the Odisha floods which have spread to several districts of the state. Out of the five deaths that are reported, two are from Balasore district and one each from Mayurbhaj, Jajpur and Keonjhar. The level of rivers is constantly rising as the rains from West Bengal continue to pour in. National Disaster Rapid Action Force (NDRAF) is trying to reach people in the villages at Jaleswar and Bhograi blocks.
Relief India Trust is also trying to reach as many people and provide them with food and clothing. As the cyclone Komen is aggravating with no signs of recession, Relief India Trust is trying to rescue as many people and get them to safer places.
