Cunningham Lindsey ready to respond to monsoon floods in India

22 Sep 10

India's annual monsoon season from June to October has already caused significant damage and loss of life in July and August of this year.

Unfortunately the monsoon season continued in late September with heavy rains and landslides sweeping the hilly areas of northern India over the weekend, killing at least 47 people, officials said Monday.1

The regions affected are in Uttarakhand State, comprising, essentially, the Almora, Pitthoragarh and Champawat regions. Thousands of people have been left homeless and the death toll continues to rise. Heavy rains are continuing to fall and the Tehri Dam's water level is apparently nearing the danger level, in addition to both the rivers Ganga and Solani flowing above the danger mark in the district.2

India's main weather office has forecast heavy rains in Uttarakhand and neighbouring Uttar Pradesh State during the next 24 hours. Already Bareilly, Badaun, Dheradun, Pilibhit and Shahajanpur are inundated.

Cunningham Lindsey maintains a sizeable network throughout Asia with offices in Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam and associates in Guam, Japan, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Our team in Delhi and our other branch offices in North India are standing by, ready to undertake instructions.
