Kerala: IMD issues red alert for 8 districts

Flooding in former Congress President Rahul Gandhi's constituency, Wayanad, has been especially bad. At least 40 people are feared trapped under debris in major landslides that took place in Wayanad and Malappuram, he said.

Vijayan, one of the survivors, said during last year's heavy rain, these families had been shifted to camps.

The weather body has also announced Red alert warning for three districts - Wayanad, Kannur and Kasargod - for August 11 while Ernakulam, Idukki, Thrissur, Palakkad, Malappuram and Kozhikode have been put on Orange alert.

"The area is risky".

The districts of Idukki, Wayanad, Kasaragod, and Malappuram were among the worst-hit, and where authorities have been pressed into action to carry out on a war footing relief and rescue operation of the flood-affected victims.

The Kerala Chief Minister's Office has opened a 24-hour control room to monitor the rescue and relief operations in the state.

After the review, MoS Rai directed the senior officers to take every possible measure to deal with the situation arising out of the southwest monsoon and to extend all necessary assistance to the flood-affected states. Near-constant rainfall over the last two days has caused massive flooding in several parts of the coastal state.

Dozens of people have died and some 100,000 moved to relief camps.

Besides road transport, train services were also disrupted across the state with most of the trains getting delayed by almost five hours.

Southern Railways has cancelled several trains, including the Kannur-Alapuzha Express, on Saturday. "The town and adjacent areas are flooded". Red alert has been issued in four districts - Idukki, Malappuram, Kozhikode and Wayanad - following heavy spells of rain, gusty winds and landslides across the state.

The death toll from floods in India's states of Karnataka, Kerala and Maharashtra rose to 95, official figures showed on Saturday, as heavy rain and landslides forced hundreds of thousands to evacuate their homes.

A year after the devastating deluge, Kerala is once again being battered by heavy rains with landslips and floods wreaking havoc claiming eight lives Thursday, while over 9,500 people have been shifted to relief camps.

Airlines have been instructed to facilitate services accordingly.

"In a second advisory, the Consulate, based in the state capital of Thiruvananthapuram, has urged the UAE citizens visiting Kerala to register with the diplomatic post so that it can keep track of them and ensure their safety and welfare", Wam said.
