Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala remains under the relentless grip of heavy rainfall, with the India Meteorological Department issuing forecasts predicting the continuation of isolated rain accompanied by thunder and lightning for the next five days. Thiruvananthapuram and Kollam districts have received warnings of thunderstorms this morning, while yellow alert has been sounded for Idukki and Palakkad districts on Sunday.
A cyclone forming in the central-west Bay of Bengal is causing rain in the area. With two cyclones present, the chances of rainfall in the state are high. The combined influence of these cyclonic systems heightens the likelihood of substantial rainfall, thunderstorms, and strong winds across the state.
The downpour has disrupted the routine activities of fishermen, who are now prohibited from venturing into the seas due to adverse weather conditions. Coastal communities are advised to exercise vigilance.
