Five Years Since Uttarakhand Floods. The devastating floods in Uttarakhand have become the cause of some renewed debates on the vulnerability of the northern Indian region to disasters in the future. These floods have brought about unprecedented devastation in villages and townships along the foothills of the Himalaya.

Experts have been questioning the Indian government’s failure to prepare for such disasters in the past, and question whether they have been successful in preparing for such disasters in the last five years.
