Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh today conducted an aerial survey of the flood-affected areas in Kerala. He was accompanied by State Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, Union Tourism Minister Alphons Kannanthanam and Revenue Minister E. Chandrasekharan. So far, 37 people have lost their lives in the current monsoon season in different parts of the state.

Meanwhile, rain in northern districts of the state has intensified and the administration has asked the people to be more vigilant. The unexpected opening of Banasurasagar dam has further worsened the flood situation in Wayanad district.

Five hundred and thirteen relief camps have been set up across the state to accommodate the affected people. The Army and the Navy are on to meet any eventuality. The Meteorological department has forecast a heavy rain in eight districts of the state for the next four days.
