US: UN envoy Haley expresses solidarity with Kerala flood victims
US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley has expressed solidarity with those affected by the floods in Kerala, which is facing the deadliest deluge in nearly 100 years. Unprecedented floods due to incessant rain created havoc in Kerala, causing immeasurable misery and devastation. As per the official records, since August 8, over 231 people have died and more than 10 lakh have been displaced.
UN is following the flood situation very closely
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres's spokesperson had said last week that the UN is "saddened" by the loss of life, destruction, and displacement caused by severe floods in Kerala. "Our humanitarian colleagues have been following the recent floods very closely. The UN is of course saddened by the loss of life, destruction, and displacement caused by floods in India," Stephane Dujarric said.
