Abstract:
Kerala has witnessed severe flood in August 2018. Like every disaster it collapsed entire Kerala economy. 13 districts in Kerala were under red alert. Kozhikode is one among those districts. This study examines the socio economic impact of flood in a Gram Panchayath of Kozhikode districts. For that purpose many descriptive statistics and correlation method is used. The flood caused massive loss on the material wealth of human being, including destruction of houses, agriculture, domestic animals. A feeling of insecurity was high during that time. They got mere financial help from government and NGOs, which is not sufficient to regain their life.
