Thousands of villagers started returning to their homes on Thursday following the floods in South India.

Flood waters started receding over the weekend and villagers were finally able to assess damages to their homes and farmland.
     
"We have never experienced anything like this before. It is the worst flooding in 100 years," said Ambrose Christy, south zonal manager for anti-poverty group Caritas India.
    
The flood killed more than 269 people and left over two million more homeless.
    
Many families are still living in temporary homes set on roadsides.    
    
Their governments are currently working on sending medical aid to the villagers to prevent disease from spreading.
