Widespread rainfall is expected for the next four days over Kerala and Lakshadweep

Heavy rains, accompanied by gale and thunderstorms, pounded several parts of southern and central Kerala on Saturday night and Sunday morning, inflicting heavy loss to the farmers. According to an official bulletin from India Meteorological Department (IMD), the sudden downpour was due to strong westerly wind flow from Arabian Sea to South Peninsular India in lower tropospheric levels. Widespread rainfall is expected for the next four days over Kerala and Lakshadweep.

The weather station in Kodungallur recorded a whopping 20 cm of rainfall, the highest quantity of rainfall for the last 24 hours ended at 8.30 a.m. on Sunday.

The Indian Coast Guard (ICG) rescued three fishermen along with a boat named Sajeera off the coast of Thengapattanam near Tamil Nadu border. As soon as the ICG received the distress call, it started search and rescue operation and found the missing fishermen.
