More than 40 people died in Kerala and Karnataka. In view of the present situation, the routes from Karnataka to Kerala via Mysore and Kodagu are blocked. Meanwhile, the Pinarayi Vijayan government has announced a holiday for schools across the state with the issuance of a KDSMA Red Alert to Wayanad, Idukki, Malappuram and Kozhikode.
Flight operations at Cochin International Airport were suspended until 3 pm on Sunday as flood waters flooded the Apron area (parking area). In view of the heavy rains, the Kerala State Disaster Management Authority (KDSMA) has moved 22,165 people to 315 camps across the state.
Earlier Thursday, flights were suspended for four hours until midnight as a precautionary measure in view of heavy rains. “As the apron area was flooded due to the flood, all flights were suspended (temporarily) at Kochi airport till 3 pm on August 11,” a non-official said. A CIL spokesperson said on Thursday that the aircraft arriving at the airport were diverted on Thursday. Water levels in the Periyar River have risen and operations have been halted due to a canal adjacent to the airport.
Heavy rains have been hitting Kerala for the past few days. Eight people were killed in Thursday’s rain-related incidents in the state, bringing back memories of last year’s devastating floods. The floods in August 2018 have made the airport unusable for a fortnight. The airport infrastructure was damaged with a loss of Rs 220-250 crore.
Meanwhile, more than two lakh people have been evacuated to safe places due to flooding in five districts of Maharashtra and western Maharashtra, with Sangli and Kolhapur districts being heavily damaged by Thursday. At least nine people were drowned when a rescue boat capsized in the Sangli district. The area has been plagued by constant rain for the past few days.
