#Thread During #KeralaFloods many of the people lost their crucial documents. It was a big mess to recover these documents since they don't even remember the document no. Hence, Kerala IT department came up with an API architecture to retrieve the documents. (1/n)
The idea was generated jointly by IT secretary M.Sivasankar and KSUM CEO Saji Gopinath. The target was to retrieve the documents by taking the basic inpit values known to the public. It startes working last day (2/n)
Incase of Aadhaar, govt will take your biometrics as the input value to generate E-Aadhaar if one doesn't remember the ID number. This will be pushed into Digilocker account created. Also will get a print out for free of cost. (3/n)

#Thread Here's an incredible story about a young man who was busy with loading and unloading in #KeralaFloods relief centres. Only days later people came to know that he was none other than, Kannan Gopinathan, the Collector of Dadra & Nagar Haveli! (1/n)
He travelled in KSRTC buses and covered 5 districts in 10 days without revealing identity. He took leave for serving his homeland in the time of crisis. Kannan is a native of Kottayam. Even his relatives were not aware of his unofficial visit! (2/n)
It was only after Eranakulam Collector Y.Safirulla's visit to centre at KBPS press, the volunteers of the camp came to know that the guy who was helping in loading goods was an IAS officer! (3/n)

IMD started issuing alerts "be prepared" from August 8! "For action" was issued on August 9.

At least glad that IMD admitted that their alerts were that close.

Also thank you for not claiming that they have issued alerts for "extreme rainfall" and only "heavy rainfall" then
I scanned all those reports of this regional office issued. NOWHERE I SEEN AN EXTREME RAINFALL EVENT ALERT. Each Monsoon season IMD used to issue HEAVY TO VERY HEAVY RAINFALL alerts and small reservoirs used to spill and the spate will be comfortably negotiated by the rivers
Please understand the nuances. We can negotiate a heavy rainfall event, whatever allowances in the dams and river channels are sufficient to negotiate that one. You will see some flooding, may be a knee deep one & dams spill w/o any problems

#CommieAHs in the Kerala Govt apparently bluffed to the court on #MullaPeriyar blaming TN?
Before we get into technicalities. The dam's height is 176 Feet. And water level allowed is 142 ft vide a SC order (throwing out KIWCA 2006 passed by Kerala
#CommieMadeDisaster
#CommieMadeDisaster
For all practical purposes the safe water storage level in #Mullaperiyar dam wass considered safe upto as 152 ft but later reduced to 142 ft (YES SAFE according to SC order of Feb 2006). Please note it is NOT CAPACITY of the dam.
#CommieMadeDisaster
TN conformed to the CWC directive to reduce the water level in #Mullaperiyar dam from 152 to 142 ft (and also further to 136.4') pending strengthening work. Post strengthening by TNPWD and as decided by Justice Anand Committee it was allowed upto 142'

#Thread #KeralaFloods Detailed thread to document the historic efforts of various online groups in rescue and relief operations. Trust me, Whatsapp and Google sheets were the powerful weapons we had. Pic: An online control room set by NRKs in house at Abu Dhabi (1/n)
It was the time we truly realised the power of social media and instant messaging services with regard to disaster management. Many were stranded on roof-tops without any other contact to the world other than their mobile phones. Whatsapp brilliantly solved the issue. (2/n)
Before going in detail let me point out the problem statements. 1) Govt issued some helpline numbers but most of them were busy with numerous calls 2) Thousands of SOS requests flooded in social media which were not addressed in a systematic manner, hence turned spams (3/n)

My humble request to His Excellency @HHShkMohd Sir to kindly confirm if UAE "Government" offered any AID to India for #KeralaFloods

If Not, I request @CMOKerala Shri @vijayanpinarayi to apologize to the nation for misleading people

cc @narendramodi @MEAIndia
OFFICIAL Statement from @MEAIndia

Where does the government say that they have refused AID from UAE. This is a general statement. The media is giving a spin to it to sensationalize it.
Simple answer to this is: UAE GOVERNMENT DID NOT OFFICIALLY OFFER AID

The CM of Kerala is caught in a trap which he can't come out of it. That stupid NRI told him & he believed him. Wait Modi Ji will give a spin to this & all these idiots will run for cover.

Media Twisted it

It's not rain..Blaming it on opening of Dams...

See the rainfall in mm in KSEB dams between 14 to 17 of August 2018

#KeralaFloods
This is almost one third of the total rainfall Kerala used to receive for an entire year!

But blame it on dams!!
14 means 14/08/2018
15 means 15/08/2018

They are not 2014 or 2015

And great IMD was clueless about this extreme rainfall which poured in this 4 days between 14-17 August 2018!!

800 mm to 950 mm.

Can you believe it?

It's all in public domain too

2. Do not take children and elderly when you enter your house for the first time.

#Thread Went to Vizhinjam coast to meet the fishermen who took part in rescue mission in #KeralaFloods . We were filled with positive energy and happiness hearing their experiences (1/n)
We dedicated almost 2 pages for celebrating their mission.On Thursday 8.10 pm Fr.Justin Judin,vicar of Vizhinjam church announced the requirement for boats through public announcement system. In 20 minutes almost 50 boats and 100 fishermen were assembled. Military like formation!
Just see the Engine fan of a fishing boat which participated in the #KeralaFloods rescue mission. Most of the boats are damaged and they won't be able to go to sea for a while. I was blown away by their sacrifice (3/n)

‘The protests over the Centre’s move to implement the Kasturirangan report are politically motivated. They are being orchestrated to disrupt the Sabrimala pilgrimage.’

I am really unhappy with the way a section of the society conducted itself, including verified accounts during #keralafloods. This is a time of introspection or bonding, not blind hate. I beg everyone not to consider any of these persons seriously over any topic down the line.
Let me post a few of these. No country can survive with such a level of hate. It's up to you to decide whether you want to build the country or widen the fault lines. And remember, with power comes responsibility.
Comparing cross-govt interactions with a calamity. @DeShobhaa, what are you implying by this?

Kerala is striving together as a fraternity to overcome the catastrophic flood. However, we have noticed that some are trying to malign this great effort with misinformation in the form of fake messages on social media. #KeralaFloods
Police have been instructed to take strict measures against such cyber offenders. Also Spotted some fraudulent messages/posters with altered CMDRF account numbers as well.
Kerala is exhibiting monumental strength to bounce back from this tragedy, and anyone who is trying to disrupt it will face serious consequences.

Floods in Kerala is mainly bcoz of of water released from upstream dam areas.The catchment area in hilly regions like Idduki & waynad got excess rainfall of 71%!The dam authorities waited to release water after dams were full. They should have released water earlier #KeralaFlood
They released the water after dams were full-15lakhlitres/second. All water gushed into down stream areas causing chaos.
CM of Kerala has no grip on administration, he only knows to handle his cadre. Known to bash media by asking to get them get out in the past. #Keralafloods

As you can see the flood hit areas in Kerala, they are all rich, almost all. Only 10% may be poor.
They don't need any help in cash or kind.
Please stop sending food or other things.
Security forces are doing the needful.
All they need is labour force, once the water recedes.
Kerala has no labours, though they pay high wages.
Electricians, plumbers, carpenters, painters, masons, domestic helpers are needed urgently by Keralites.
Commies & Kerala Govt are begging for funds for their own luxuries.
Most of the development in Kerala is done by common people.
Even the International airports are the contribution of common citizens in Kerala.

#KeralaFloods might hv an astral connection, as it is believed #Kerala d land of #vamana celebrates every yr #Onam around this time, Onam falls on d birth #constellation of vamana i.e #Shravana nakshtra in which we had d longest total lunar eclipse of this century on 27/28 July
Like at a personal level for one who is born or associated with shravana constellation or Nakshtra d #Eclipse affects individually similarly it affects a region in this case #kerala at a mundane level astrally on human affairs that runs across d southern belt of #westernghats
Also #Kerala is a land blessed by d #serpents & d reason for its fertility is directly related to d blessings bestowed by #Nagas on #Parasurama in a barren land infested with sea salt, hence not respecting d blessings by cutting down forests on large scale in d name of developmnt

2)Front Page of The Straits Times (Singapore), Sat 18 Aug
3)Front Page of @gulf_news (Dubai), Sat 18 Aug
4)Front Page of @timesofindia (India), Sat 18 Aug

International Newspapers have #KeralaFloods on Front page, while TOI has no news.
Similarly the Front pages of Times Group owned newspapers ( The Economic Times, Vijaya Karnataka and Navbharat Times) had no news about Kerala Floods on Sat 18 Aug.

Times of India then has the Audacity to mock Kerala through a Cartoon.

Such a Beautiful Newspaper.
The Hindu, HT, Telegraph, Deccan Chronicle had news about Kerala News on its Front page on Sat 18 Aug

TOI gave the news on a Front flap. Nice.

ഒരു തമിഴ് സഹോദരന്റെ കമന്റ്‌ വായിച്ചപ്പോൾ GOOSEBUMP moment.. പരിഭാഷ താഴെ ചേർക്കുന്നു..

മഴ തുടങ്ങിയപ്പോൾ നിങ്ങളും സന്തോഷിച്ചിട്ടുണ്ടാവും ഞങ്ങളെ പോലെ തന്നെ. കുട്ടികളും യുവാക്കളും മുതിർന്നവരും ആ മഴയിൽ തുള്ളിച്ചാടിയിട്ടുണ്ടാവാം. വെള്ളത്തിന്റെ അളവ് കൂടുന്നതു നിങ്ങൾ ശ്രദ്ധിച്ചിട്ടുണ്ടാവില്ല, അതു പരിധി വിടുന്നത് വരെ. ഞങ്ങളെ പോലെ തന്നെ.

അതിനു ശേഷമാണ് നിങ്ങളും ഞങ്ങളും തമ്മിലുള്ള വ്യത്യാസം..

ഒരാഴ്ച തുടർച്ചയായി ചെന്നൈ നഗരത്തെ മഴ വിഴുങ്ങിയപ്പോൾ ഞങ്ങൾ മരവിച്ചു പോയി. സഹായത്തിനായി അലമുറയിട്ടു. നെഞ്ചത്തടിച്ചു. അന്ന് കേരളമക്കളും ആ ദുരിതത്തിൽനിന്നു കരപറ്റാൻ ഞങ്ങളുടെ നേരെ കൈ നീട്ടി തന്നു.

Some lessons we learnt from #ChennaiRains for those helping out in Kerala:

- Dry food like biscuits, milk powder, etc are better than cooked food or fruits (which can perish).

- If giving clothes, send one-size-fits-all items like sarees, dhotis than shirts/pants.
- Send torches, batteries. Portable chargers. Communication saves lives.

- If you are volunteering, make sure YOU don’t fall sick. Eat on time. Stay hydrated. We need you.

- MOST IMPORTANT: Do NOT forward unverified msgs even with best intentions.
on dealing with govt agencies:

Remember that they are flooded with distress calls. Do not call multiple times for the same complaint/request. Patience is hard, but needed.

In 2015, we would just text the NDRF officers with accurate info. Worked like a charm.

വടശ്ശേരിക്കര, റാന്നി, ആറന്മുള, ചെങ്ങന്നൂർ, അപ്പർ കുട്ടനാട്, കുട്ടനാട്.. പമ്പയൊഴുകുന്ന വഴി ഇതാണ്. ആ നാടിനെ അറിയാവുന്നവർക്ക് അറിയാം, ഇതേ ക്രമത്തിലാണ് പമ്പയിൽ വെള്ളപ്പൊക്കം സംഭവിക്കുന്നതും. #CallArmySaveKerala #KeralaFloods #KeralaSOS #Kuttanad
2. മൂന്ന് ദിവസം മുൻപ് റാന്നിയിൽ ജലനിരപ്പ് ക്രമാതീതമായി ഉയർന്നപ്പോൾ താഴേക്ക് അത് കൊണ്ടുവരാൻ പോവുന്ന വിപത്തിന്റെ വ്യക്തമായ സൂചന ആയിരുന്നു. ആ സൂചന കിട്ടിയപ്പോൾ തന്നെ താഴേക്ക് കുട്ടനാട് വരെ ജനങ്ങളെ ഒഴിപ്പിക്കാൻ ആരംഭിക്കേണ്ടതായിരുന്നു. അത് നടന്നില്ല.
3. ഇന്ന്, മൂന്നര ദിവസങ്ങൾക്ക് ശേഷവും പതിനായിരങ്ങൾ ചെങ്ങന്നൂരിൽ രക്ഷക്കായി കേഴുന്ന അവസ്ഥ ദൗർഭാഗ്യവശാൽ നമ്മുടെ ദുരിതാശ്വാസ പ്രവർത്തനങ്ങൾ എത്ര വലിയ പരാജയം ആയിരുന്നു എന്നതിന്റെ നേർസാക്ഷ്യമാണ്.

A child rescued by an Indian Navy Chetak chopper team in Aluva.
Salute 🙏
#JaiHind
Before spewing venom against PM Modi & propagating lies, just learn who sent all rescue teams to Kerala?
Anyone from madrassa or lslamic orgs volunteered?
Your @CMOKerala is just watching helplessly.
@Beingind
Kerala provided Rs.5cr to Pakistan for flood relief.
The @CMOKerala noted that the floods had caused considerable hardships to the people of Pakistan. Hence the decision to provide the assistance.

Does he know the pathetic condition of common man in Kerala Or taken for granted?
