The heavy water discharge from the Maharashtra reservoir due to heavy Rains in the particular areas has severely affected the North Karnataka districts of Belagavi, Bijapur, Raichur, Kalburgi, Yadgir and Uttara Kannada. Karnataka received nearly five times the rainfall it normally used to have, adding to the severity of the floods across 12 districts. Excess rainfall is the main possible factor that caused and intensified floods.
NetRack, a solution provider for data centers and end-to-end IT server racks, acted and came forward to help the recent flood-affected victims in Karnataka. The company contributed INR 10 lakhs to help the flood affected victims in Karnataka. Besides, NetRack also donated 3000 saplings to Isha foundation towards ‘Save Cauvery Campaign’, urging on the importance of trees in holding the soil during floods.
Ravi Raj, Brand Head, Director, Sales & Support at NetRack said, “We at NetRack feel proud to be able to extend our support to help the flood-affected regions with our small contribution. Also, I would like to thank the Karnataka police along with the Indian Air Force, civilians, NGOs, volunteers, fishermen from coastal Karnataka who had actively taken part in the rescue operations.”
Like NetRack, out there are many NGOs, rescue teams, including personnel State Disaster Response Force (SDRF), National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) and the Army, who extended their helping hands for the restoration of flood-affected regions of Karnataka.
