People in agony

What do the people in these pictures have in common?

They are in desperate situations. It may look like there is sunshine, but both the old woman in Bangalore, shown in the photo above, and the family in the Philippines, in the photo below, are in crisis because of flooding. These days, storms which are billed as "the worst in XX years are the order of the day. Irresponsible and unrestrained human activities in the modern era have led to dramatic changes in the global weather. Such extreme weather leads to natural disasters of unprecedented scale. People in poor countries are usually the most exposed and helpless, as have been so clearly shown in these photos.
