The United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley has expressed solidarity with those affected by the devastating floods in Kerala, which is facing the fatal flood in about 100 years.

Unprecedented floods due to perpetual rain have created havoc in Kerala, causing immeasurable misery and devastation.

According to official records, since August 8, over 231 people have died and more than 10 lakh have been displaced.

"Our hearts go out to our Indian brothers and sisters in Kerala who have been affected by the worst monsoon and flooding in over 100 years. We send special prayers to those who have lost a loved one and to all the families of the region as they begin to rebuild," the Indian-origin diplomat said in a message tweeted by the U.S. Mission to the UN.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres' spokesperson had said earlier this week that the United Nations is "saddened" by the destruction, loss of life, and displacement caused by terrible floods in Kerala and is pursuing the situation very closely.

"Our humanitarian colleagues, as well as the country team in India, have been following the recent floods very closely. The United Nations is of course saddened by the loss of life, destruction, and displacement caused by floods in India," Dujarric had told reporters.
