The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has warned that rains in Kerala could intensify in the coming days.

Twelve people have so far lost their lives and sever are missing in neighbouring Wayanad district, which also witnessed a landslide at Puthumala in Meppadi.

In the past seven days, the Indian Navy has rescued over 14,000 people from flood-affected areas of Maharashtra, Goa and Karnataka under operation "Varsha Rahat". "It's not easy to escape from landslides", Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said.

"The state government will do everything possible to give maximum help and support to all, so that they come back to normal life very quickly". A large number of Muslims live in districts like Malappuram, Kozhikode, Kannur and Kasargode which are the worst flood affected areas.

In Karnataka, where the water has begun to recede from many flood-affected areas due to a let up in rains, the death toll stood at 48 on Monday, even as the flood waters of the Tungabadra river entered the ground level of the UNESCO world heritage site in Hampi. "We have rescued around 480,000 people, over 50,000 animals and set up around 1,100 relief camps which have over 300,000 people", a Karnataka government official told AFP.

Incessant rain and the consequent floods have caused widespread damage in Kerala with 83 dead and over 2.87 lakh people displaced.

In 185 camps in Malappuram, 45,377 people have been sheltered, the update stated.

Depending on your behavior, it can be determined whether or not you are using exam dumps and if so, penalties will be imposed. As you can see the retake policy is a bit lenient, but it is still wise to make sure that you pass at the first attempt.

Over 35,000 people are in 196 relief camps in Wayanad district.

"Political partisanship is least expected in times of natural calamities and unfortunate deaths of people", the Politburo statement added.

"Forty lives have been lost in Maharashtra, 32 in Karnataka and 24 in Gujarat".

In states hit by floods, several roads were cleared, allowing partial movement of traffic, with priority being given to trucks carrying essential goods. As many as 1,332 relief camps are now operational in the state.

They were shifted to 372 temporary camps and shelters.

Stoking a controversy, the CPI (M) politburo claimed that Home Minister Amit Shah had "deliberately skipped" aerial survey of the flood-hit areas of the State and instead chose to vist BJP-ruled states like Maharashtra and Karnataka. The flood affected Shoranur-Kozhikode section has been fully restored and up and down lines have been made fit for train operation, Railways said.

"Starting tomorrow, rains will be heavy in Alappuzha, Ernakulam and Idukki till Wednesday, while on Thursday it's going to be isolated rains", said an IMD official.
