Heavy rains lash Kerala, Orange alert in six districts

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The state's heavy rains continued on Sunday, prompting the state administration to issue an Orange alert for six districts. The districts of Kollam, Kottayam, Pathanamthitta, Alappuzha, Idukki, and Ernakulam are under an orange alert.  Following rainfall, the state has issued a yellow alert for 11 districts. Thiruvananthapuram's state tax department has built a 24-hour control room.

Fishermen have been told not to go out into the water because of the heavy rain and the expectation for additional rain in the coming days in the state. It's worth noting that the IMD has predicted heavy rains in Kerala through May 17.
Many districts and the state have already established relief camps. V.P. Joy, the chief secretary, has sent an advisory to all district collectors. Given the possibility of further rain in the state in the coming days, district collectors and district superintendents of police have been put on high alert to take all required precautions.

The state disaster management authority has also issued a warning to all district disaster management units to be on high alert and to ready themselves with all required materials in case of an emergency.
