- How much excess rainfall has Kerala received this monsoon?
Except Trishur, Kannur and Kasargod districts, which have recorded normal rainfall, all other districts are witnessing excess rains. Idukki has recorded highest rainfall, in excess of 70%, while Kerala overall has recorded 37% excess rain so far this monsoon season.
- So how did most districts get flooded?
A combination of heavy, persistent rainfall, particularly over last week, and the release of thousands of cumec of water into rivers from dams and reservoirs are responsible for the flooding of low-lying areas.
- Where are the people being given shelter?
As of now there are more than 1.5 lakh people staying at 106u7 relief camps in the state. Ernakulam district has the maximum number of 196 relief camps. These camps have been set up mostly at government schools, colleges, anganwadis, churches and auditoriums.
- How affected are the public transportation systems in Kerala?
Torrential rainfall since Tuesday has flooded major roads and national highways in Ernakulam, particularly near Aluva. Streams connected to the Periyar flooding above its levels have led to water collecting on roads. Bus and auto rickshaw services have also been affected. Currently, Thiruvananthapuram and Kozhikode airports are handling most of the flights into the state.
