Relief in coming days as IMD says Kerala not to be hit by extremely heavy rainfall
After about a week of torrential downpour, the Southwest Monsoon seems to have reduced its strength over Kerala. According to the latest update from the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD), extremely heavy rainfall is not predicted anywhere in the state for the coming days.
Although, isolated heavy rains have been predicted in Kozhikode, Kannur and Kasaragod districts of northern Kerala for Wednesday. Yellow colour code warning, implying the district officials ‘to be updated’ on the weather, has been issued in these districts for the day. Yellow colour code warning has also been issued for Kannur for Thursday, and Kasaragod for both Thursday and Friday.
As a precautionary measure to avoid any untoward incidents, the Kerala State Disaster Management Authority (KSDMA) has put out a directive for those living in flood-prone areas or which are prone to landslides, to prepare an emergency kit that could come in handy in case of emergencies.
KSDMA has also put out the links of maps showing places in Kerala that are prone to flood and landslides.
