  1. 27 people are being killed in Meghalaya the northeast part of India. The total the people who lost their lifes from both Assam and Meghalaya are 44. We are facing dangerously landslides and flood in Meghalaya

  2. Thumbnail says, “Worst flood in 150 years”. Well we can rule out global warming. Since it flood like this 150 years ago…. Let’s go eat cake!

  3. Why do people have to reach out to any disaster in the country? People do not pay VAT? Don't pay taxes? Where does the people's money go? Where is the drainage system? Where is the elevated road? Where's the barrier? Where's the plan? Where are all these maintenance people? What is disaster preparedness? Where is the next disaster? Why are the cyclone centers in remote areas in dilapidated condition? Where is the accountability of the government? What is the work of the Ministry of Disaster and Relief? Why is Bangladesh sinking?

  4. The monsoons come every year. Is it possible to build water catch systems by the farms for when it is dry to irrigate the farms and shelters on higher ground so that at the start of the rains the people would have a high and dry place to go when the rains start.

  5. It is unprecedented here in Assam. My hometown is near the mountains and the rains are unprecedented we are more prone to flash flooding when the monsoon lashes the lower Himalayas in Bhutan and Arunachal Pradesh…I live just 20 km away from the mountains. The areas low lying areas near Brahmaputra are completely under water. I have never seen such rain in my lifetime.

  6. 72 people had died in Assam, in India when this news report was made, stating 9people as dead. the difference in the count is appalling @DwNews!! Today that number is 100.

  7. For the first time in history, all of humanity is facing a common external enemy. This enemy is the climate. In the face of planetary danger, it is necessary to unite all people for the future of humanity.
    People are already ready to act, and as an example of this – International online forum "Global Crisis. We are People. We Want to Live".
    Look it up on YouTube, it not only identifies problems but also suggests a way out!

  8. This is what I can western hypocrisy no where millions of people have become homeless some villages and towns have been affected yes but not in the scale u claim !!

  9. Everytime you say climate change you could be saying the name of a company and its board members/CEOs that have been polluting more and making record profits for decades. Human pollution and waste are a small fraction of what the industries are doing, what governments allow, and what media enables.

  10. Praying for Bangladesh and India's people and animals, Priminster shiekh Hasina from Bangladesh and Modi from India are both useless, selfish for thier own needs, hope people realise this fast.

  11. Ask United kingdom or United nations

    Great but both need to invite sweden, shri Lanka, Myanmar, HAWAII, TONGA, BARBADOS, BAHAMAS, SOUTH KOREA, NEPAL, GENEVA, MONACO, SWITZERLAND, SWEDEN, AUSTRAKIA, FINLAND

  12. Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:

    7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
