Red alert issued in Idukki and Malappuram
 
Thiruvananthapuram: According to the IMD, a low pressure is likely to form over southeast Arabian Sea tomorow and it is likely to concentrate into a depression and move north-westwards during subsequent 48 hours. It is likely to intensify into a cyclonic storm thereafter.

With the depression intensifying, the coastal areas would witness strong winds and fishermen have been advised not to venture into the sea between 6 and 8 October.

In the wake of the forecast, the state government has decided to take precautionary measures on a 'war-footing' to deal with any eventuality.

Necessary instructions have been given to district collectors to set up relief camps in hilly areas tomorrow (5 October) as there is a possibility of landslides and people living in such places should follow the instructions of the officials.

A red alert has been issued in Idukki and Malappuram districts. People have been asked to avoid night travel in hilly areas and tourists visiting Munnar in Idukki to get a glimpse of 'Neelakurinji', should refrain from visiting the place until further instructions.

Since there is possibility of floods, people living on the banks of rivers and streams have been asked to move to relief camps. The government also wanted the central forces to be prepared in view of the alert and said it would seek deployment of five more teams of National Disaster Response Force (NDRF).

According to the bullet in heavy to very heavy rainfall (12-20 cm in 24 hours) is most likely to occur at one or two places in Kerala from 4-6 October and extremely heavy rainfall (21 cm and above) is most likely to occur at one or two places on 7 October.
