Kerala braces to meet threat of Cyclone Tauktae

Heavy rains triggered by impending Cyclone Tauktae battered many parts of the Kerala and more than 15,000 people living in low-lying areas and coastal villages were shifted to temporary camps on Friday, the Kerala Disaster Management Authority said.

After the India Meteorological Department's warning that the cyclone is gathering high velocity and strength, a red alert was declared in five districts-- Thiruvananthapuram, Kollam, Alappuzha, Pathanamitta and Ernakulam. As the sea turned turbulent many coastal villages bore the brunt and several houses were damaged in Thiruvananthapuram, Kochi and Alappuzha. A 19-year-old youth was drowned in a swollen river in Mukkam in Kozhikode district.

The whole state has been on high alert and nine teams of the National Disaster Response Force have been deployed in affected areas. Kerala has also sought the help of three armed forces. Some areas have received 40 mm rain in the last 24 hours.

"We are facing a peculiar situation. In the midst of the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic, the cyclonic threat is posing an additional burden on us but we will overcome it," said chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan adding the state is prepared to meet the fresh challenge posed by the cyclone. He said the army, air force and navy units were ready to help the state in case of an emergency.
