    Landslides hamper aid efforts in India flooding

    Theodore Sam took these photos as he rode with humanitarian organization World Vision’s emergency assessment team, responding to flash floods that have hit Uttarakhand, India. The team has been winding through the Himalayan foothills on narrow roads for two days trying to get to the most affected areas, but they continue to be blocked by landslides. The photos show a glimpse of the challenges aid workers face trying to get to those in need.

    The team reports accessibility to the some of the most affected areas is completely cut off by the massive landslides that destroyed the narrow roads along the Himalayan foothills. They passed jeeps and houses buried in silt and sections of mountain completely fallen away. Sam says visibility is often just a few feet in the continuous, driving rain. World Vision in India has about 6000 relief kits pre-positioned for immediate distribution in disasters such as these.
