The south Indian state of Kerala witnessed one of the worst floods in its history starting from the 8th of August, 2018. Unusually high rainfalls during the monsoonal season is commonly cited as the main reason for the startling calamitous situation.

Though the southern-most state was able to manage well the highly destructive calamity, the cost, both tangible and intangible, the people of the state had to pay was very high. Housing is one of the most severely affected fields in many such tragic occasions; several people are left misplaced and homeless.

In the wake of the calamity Benny Kuriakose prepared a handbook or a flood manual (in English) containing schematic sketches and instructions for the disaster reconstruction works then underway.

This “Kerala Flood Manual” provides comprehensive guidance and directions for the engineers and other experts involved in the flood rehabilitation and reconstruction works.
