Spare a thought for...

...Jamkhandi taluk, in Bagalkot district of Karnataka, where 2000 people have been evacuated, 6000 are still stranded, the administration has begun airdropping food, and "ganji kendras" have been set up. There is a report with a picture from a submerged village here.

...the 13.5 lakh people affected in the Orissa floods.

...Kerala's Idukki district, affected by rain and floods.

...These leprosy patients in Pandharpur who have been displaced because of the floods - and segregated from others in relief camps.

...And these flood-affected areas in Turkey's northeast provinces, and these in Iran.
