20 flats vacated after cave-in in Ahmedabad's Gomtipur 19.8.2018 DNA: India
Friday rains wreaked havoc in Ahmedabad. The city, which bore the brunt, received nearly four-inch rainfall. Several pockets in the city were waterlogged and cave-ins have been rampant this season. A major cave-in that occurred near Silver Flats in Gomtipur, where an underground tunnel is being dug for the Metro project, on Friday night, led to residents of some 20 flats vacate their homes. The tremor and destruction of the upper surface of the earth sent shock waves. The cave-in has been fixed within hours, Metro officials said. A water tank of the municipal staff quarters sunk and some cracks also opened up several walls of the building on Friday. The residents of the quarters woke up to a shock on Saturday as the land on the campus reportedly moved. The ground floor occupants were the worst affected. "We spent sleepless nights. There is a fear that our houses might collapse and sink due to the Metro work. We need an alternate place to live in. Where shall we go now?," said Khema Parmar, one of the ...

Kerala Floods: Ecologists say 'development' led to disaster 19.8.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
Even as Kerala is facing its worst ever monsoon floods, environmentalists call it as a man-made disaster citing the government's failure on the environmental policy front. They attributed the devastating floods and landslides to the extensive quarrying, mining, mushrooming of high-rises on the hillside as part of tourism and illegal encroachment of forestland by private parties. All the 14 districts in the state have been placed under red alert, after 35 out of the 39 dams including Mullaperiyar, Cheruthoni, part of Idukki reservoir and Idamalayar had to be opened at the same time for the first time. The water level crossed dangerous levels which led to flooding in the downstream areas. People were stranded after several areas in the hilly districts were cut off due to landslides. The data from the Indian Meteorological Department shows that Kerala received 2,087.67 mm of rain from June 1 to August 15—a departure of nearly 30 per cent from the 3,368 mm rain in 1924. Environmentalists cited the extensive ...
