Andhra Pradesh Flood: Couple Ties Knot On Boat In Konaseema

The State Disaster Respone Force mobilised a team to help them into boats

In Andhra Pradesh’s Konaseema district, a young woman braved floods – that made a road look more like a muddy lake – to get to her wedding.

The wedding took place on Friday, news agency ANI reported. The bride’s family were stranded due to waterlogging caused by the rain, and were struggling to reach the venue.

Enter the State Disaster Respone Force, which mobilised a team to help them into boats and pushed them through the floods to reach the venue and groom’s family.

The happy couple managed to wed after all.

Photos shared by ANI showed the bride and her family – all dressed up in wedding finer – on a boat as they crossed the floodwaters.

Several parts of Andhra have been hit by incessant rain and floods, with water levels in the Godavari river rising by the hour and threatening villages – mostly in the West Godavari and Konaseema districts.
