Possibly more than 11,000 people are missing from India’s flash flood which killed near a 1000 at a tourist site, Uttarakhand. Though over 100,000 people have been evacuated so far, hundreds were still stranded. Some of them have been swept away by the flood waters and covered in the mudslides. People saw their entire families and homes washed away. Total roadways are now gone, leaving the area very hard to even get to. Thousands of bodies lay buried in mud 5 to 15 feet below the ground. A spiritual center of Lord Shiva, the religious places have since become businesses in contradiction to why they exist to begin with. Many are asking, “Did the God’s do this because we have lost our true focus in life?” This city will never be the same. In over 2000 years nothing like this has ever happened. All the waters from the Himalayan mountaintops unleashed with such a force and wiped away the whole city. As India mourns, let them know we are with them and we send their families good blessings and energy.
