Kerala rains - death toll touches 60

 

 

The toll in rain-related incidents in Kerala climbed to 60 by Sunday morning, even as Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan warned that heavy rain was likely to continue for two more days.

As many as 2,27,333 people (65,548 families) had been evacuated to 1,551 camps so far, he said after convening a high-level meeting at the State Emergency Operations Centre here.

“Weather updates show heavy rain could persist for two more days in the State. So we should continue to maintain high alert,’’ he said. On Sunday, red alerts were in place for Kannur, Wayanad and Kasaragod districts.

With rainfall diminishing in intensity, rescue operations have resumed in the landslip-hit Kavalappara in Malappuram and Meppadi in Wayanad. “The intensity of the rainfall has decreased in Malappuram. But the rescue effort is hampered by soil deposits that are 10 to 12 feet thick,’’ he said.
