Weather Warning! Heavy Rainfall in Southern States; Red Alert Issued

Kerala Red Alert

Heavy Rains are likely to lash several parts of Kerala, Lakshadweep and Tamil Nadu and coastal parts of the Southern region in the next five days due to an active North-East Monsoon over the Southern region as per the latest weather reports. Moreover, a red alert has been issued in these districts of Kerala - Thiruvananthapuram, Alappuzha, Kottayam, Ernakulam, Idukki, Thrissur and Palakkad due to cyclonic circulation over southwest Bay of Bengal. 

As per the Indian Meteorological Department reports, “Fairly widespread to widespread rainfall with isolated heavy to very heavy falls likely over peninsular India during the next 4-5 days. Heavy to very heavy rainfall with extremely heavy falls likely over Coastal Andhra Pradesh and Tamilnadu, Puducherry & Karaikal on 22nd and over Coastal Karnataka during 23rd to 25th October. Thunderstorm accompanied by lightning very likely over parts of peninsular, east and central India during next 2 days.” 

On the other hand, heavy rain plays a ‘spoiler game’ in several parts of Maharashtra during the polling day when voters are expected to decide the fate of 288 constituencies. Meanwhile, the national capital’s air quality turned “poor” as the wind direction changed to northwesterly.
