Natural calamities affect people’s life badly, and it gives bad memories for their lifetime. Here I am going to share my memory about the flood which had occurred in my state in the year 2018. It was raining continuously for more than 5days. People were not able to move out of their houses to buy food and commodities. After a few days, the dams and reservoirs were getting filled fastly. Later the authorities decided to open the dam; hence floods occurred in the whole state. As the water was allowed to move out at a time, it affected the lives of people in the worst way. Moreover, many people had lost their lives and houses as well. They were relocated to different areas. Houses were getting filled with water. In most of the homes, people were staying on the second floor or terrace. When the situation became worse, They were moved out of their homes by helicopters. However, the youths and old alike had actively engaged in overcoming this disaster. They had started camps and arranged food and commodities to help the needy. People were staying in the camps during that time. It was a time when the whole state stood together to overcome the flood disaster. Even though people had lost their dear ones and homes, we had overcome the situation, and people came to know the reality that everything can be solved if we stand together in difficult times. I think these calamities are occurring because of human activities being done to the environment. Hence we should take measures to save the environment.
