Re: Kerala Floods - Aug 2018

in any flood relief op the district admin is involved for storage, guides, distribution help, manpower.
the civil govt is still very much in place, has not collapsed and has the best information and reach.

deploying armed forces is not a magic solution.

Re: Kerala Floods - Aug 2018

I suppose shallow draft LPD ships can pickup and drop supplies to the coast in bulk rather than attempt to move by trucks or aircraft . only trains can match that throw weight if functioning near flood areas.

even jalashwa could be quite useful imo.

airports have miles of electrical cables for lights and landing aids, and underground fuel storages and pipes in some airports (like blr does not use fuel tankers but fuel comes via pipes to each parking area)
