Uttarakhand Floods death toll highest since the start of this millennium

Not since 2000 have these many lives being lost from floods. The Uttarakhand  floods at an estimated count of 6500 dead is the 37th of all time loss list since recorded history, the second highest in the last 30 years, and the highest in the last 13 years. Not the kind of stats to be proud about, but just thought it would give us all the sense of the calamity.
