Ashok Krishna Kadam, MaharashtraMaharastra: Ashok Krishna Kadam, his son Sachin, daughter-in-law Mayuri, and grandson Ayush were inside their house in Kolhapur, Maharashtra when it crumbled under intense rain. Thankfully no one in the family sustained any injury. They were rescued by people from the village and evacuated to a relief camp in Chinchwad. As the water recedes in some part of Sangli and Kolhapur, families like Ashok’s are returning home to take stock of things, bracing themselves for a long hard road to recovery. Altogether 4,74,226 families in Sangli, Satara and Kohlapur are affected due to the floods.
