With swaths of the state still underwater, the death toll is expected to rise. Officials told local media that more than 165,000 people had taken refuge in relief camps, while the state’s main airport at Kochi had been closed.A World Bank report earlier this year warned that South Asia appeared increasingly vulnerable to flooding as a result of rising average temperatures and changes in rainfall patterns.
