The rescue effort by flight diver Amit and Pilot-in-Command Cdr Vijay Verma have been garnering a lot of praise online.

However, despite all help and swift action, many rescue team members reported that they were unable to rescue people even after they had reached affected areas due to huge compound walls and heavy inflow of water. The death toll in the Kerala deluge may likely to go up as hundreds of people are still stranded in flooded areas.
