Thiruvananthapuram: The latest weather forecast, which has now come out predicts heavy rains to lash the state starting Wednesday. It all started with the century’s biggest floods in 2018 and since then every year, Kerala has seen heavy rains and flash floods.

An orange alert has been issued for the Idukki dam reservoir from 7am on Monday by the Dam Safety Authority of the state. Meanwhile, a blue alert has been issued for Idamalayar reservoir in Ernakulam district. A red alert has been issued for Kakki reservoir in the Pathanamthitta district.

The Pathanamthitta district collector informed that shutters of the Kakki dam have been opened. As rains lashed the state causing landslides and flash floods in several parts, the authorities tightened measures to prevent casualties.

This time the worst-affected have been the Kottayam and Idukki districts and though the rains have slowed down since Saturday evening and on Monday morning, authorities have issued an alert in eight of the 14 districts of the state.

However, on Monday in Pathanamthitta district in Central Kerala, things appear not that encouraging.

Meanwhile, the social media has also taken up the recurring natural disaster as nothing but man-made and numerous trolls have come highlighting the statement of noted environmentalist Madhav Gadgil, who headed the Western Ghats Ecology Expert Panel and in 2013 warned that if Kerala does not stop tampering with the Western Ghats, a huge disaster is round the corner.
