Current Situation of Kerala
A flash flood, triggered by widespread landslips in the high ranges of Kottayam district, has raised fear of another great deluge like the previous year.
There was a sudden rise in the water level in the Meenachil river with the flood water gushing into several houses on the river banks due to the landslips at Adukkam in the Theekkoyi ranges which was reported in early hours of Friday.
The district administration has so far opened 5 relief camps where 114 members from 29 families have been accommodated.

The floodwaters have taken over all the major roads, airports, and causeways across the rivers, bringing normal life to a halt.
