Continuous rains caused minor landslips and disruption of train service in some parts of Kerala on Saturday, prompting authorities to stay extremely vigilant in hilly areas, river sides and tourist centres as the weatherman issued a ‘red alert’ for Thiruvananthapuram district. According to the latest update of the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD), extremely heavy rains were predicted in Thiruvananthapuram while an ‘orange alert’, warning very heavy rainfall, was issued for Kollam, Pathanamthitta, Alappuzha, Kottayam and Idukki districts.

As per the reports, a new low pressure area is likely to be formed in the Andaman Sea in the Bay of Bengal in the next 12 hours, and it was expected to reach the middle east side of the Bay of Bengal by November 15 and be strengthened as extreme low pressure.

IMD has also reported that the CM also said there was a plausibility of more rainfall than normal in Kerala in the next two weeks, from November 12-25.
