Monsoon fury continues to play havoc in Kerala. Incessant rain since Saturday and subsequent landslides have claimed at least 14 lives. Officials say more casualties are expected. The Kochi airport will remain closed for the second day today due to water flooding the runway. 126 flights have been cancelled since yesterday, affecting nearly 11,000 passengers.
After incessant heavy rain for the last 48 hours, the government in Kerala has asked the army and navy for assistance with rescue and relief operations; landslides have blocked access to a major highway in Adimali, popular with tourists. The Kochi airport has closed and will not re-open till 3.30 pm on Tuesday, said officials.
