The south Indian state of Kerala faced the worst flood in a century around the same time last year in 2018. In August 2018 Kerala had witnessed mass destruction as the floods killed 483 citizens and led to a number of people getting lost.

The monsoon season has hit Kerala once again and the rains are overpowering the state just like it did last year, leading to dangerous landslides and fatalities. This has led to the UAE Consulate in Kerala to publish an advisatory warning against travelling to Kerala at this time of the year.

Flights to Kerala are being cancelled and diverted because of the heavy downpour and because Friday morning it was announced that the Kochi International Airport will remain closed till Sunday when the rains are expected to get better.

The UAE government is also advising citizens to take precautionary measures and to follow all the safety regulations released by the authorities in India

Citizens can get in contact with the consulate via the following numbers: 00919087777737 and 80044444

It has been reported that eight people and one infant were killed in the floods

3000 people were evacuated from Kozhikode, Kannur, Wayanad, Kasargode and Idukki districts as these areas are being affected the worst

Hoping everyone is safe in this weather and the Kochi International Airport will begin operating from Sunday 3pm onwards.
