Kerala Rains

The state of Kerala has been witnessing heavy showers in many pockets with residents facing trouble in view of these rainfall activities for the past couple of days. Before this, Kerala rains had been on the lower side with heavy rains remaining far away from the state.

These rains have occurred in view of the active Monsoon surge which has activated the Trough along the West Coast.

In fact, in the last 24 hours from 8:30 am on Wednesday, Valparai witnessed 202 mm of rain, Kochi saw 67 mm of rainfall, Punalur 67 mm, Kannur 49 mm, Karipur 35 mm, and Thiruvananthapuram 34 mm.

In fact, rains have been heavy enough for red alert to be issued in Idukki, Malappuram and Kozhikode today, and these showers are expected to continue for the next couple of days. Moreover, due to these intense rains over many areas, the district collector of Malappuram had declared educational institutions to remain closed. This includes schools, colleges, Kendriya Vidyalayas, Madrasas and Anganwadi.

Along with crop damage being reported in this Kerala district, many villages have been submerged in water due to hefty rains.

Now also, heavy rains are expected to continue over the state of Kerala with many parts likely to witness three digit rains as well. In fact, heavy rains are expected to continue until August 10 and will thereafter witness a significant reduction as the Monsoon surge will weaken.
