Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala is experiencing heavy rainfall, and the India Meteorological Department (IMD) predicts its persistence over the next five days. In response to continuous rain, a Yellow alert has been declared today for 10 districts. All districts, excluding Thiruvananthapuram, Kollam, Pathanamthitta, and Alappuzha, are under a Yellow alert.
The India Meteorological Department (IMD) indicates that the ongoing heavy rainfall is attributed to the persistent cyclonic circulation over the north Karnataka coast and the southwest Bay of Bengal near the Tamil Nadu coast. Additionally, cyclones are currently prevailing over North Madhya Pradesh and the Myanmar-East Bay of Bengal region. The forecast suggests that rainfall will persist, as a low-pressure system is expected to develop over the Bay of Bengal.
As per the India Meteorological Department’s forecast, Kerala is set to experience heavy rainfall between September 28 and October 1. The department has issued a cautionary advisory for isolated locations and hilly areas, anticipating an increase in the intensity of rainfall during this period.
