about the video
Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy on Friday extended a relief fund of Rs 10 crore to flood-hit Kerala. Twenty seven people have been killed, including 11 in high range Idukki in landslips, in the torrential rains in Kerala. Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan described the situation as “very grim” with army columns being deployed at Ayannkulu, Idukki and Wayanad. As water levels rise in various dams and reach almost their maximum capacity, shutters of at least 24 reservoirs in Kerala have been opened to drain out excess water. Four of the five shutters of the Idukki dam have been opened. (HT Correspondent )
