Following the heavy rainfall and floods in Kerala, there were unexpected and destructive landslides, following which 324 people have lost their lives, said the Kerala chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan. Kerala has been witnessing a rainfall that has not hit the state in the past 50 years.
Due to this unfortunate historic rainfall recorded, many parts of Kerala have been affected heavily, and most of the areas of the state have been submerged under water. With the rains continuing still, rivers, lakes and water bodies have been overflowing, and this has lead to the opening of 33 dams, and due to the opening of dams, water has entered into many villages.
With many people losing their homes
as well as their properties, they have been made to settle temporarily in
relief camps, and due to the non-stop rain, a red alert has been issued in 13
districts. Train and flight services have been canceled, and now while CM
Pinarayi Vijayan had said in the morning that the death toll was 164, now by
evening it has risen to 324. This has been the worst disaster in the past, and
223139 people have been lodged in more than 1500 relief camps.
Migrants figures shown a negative growth of 11.6% from Kerala Accordingly a new study says factors like the declining population in the 19-25 age groups and stagnant wages in the Gulf countries could be responsible for migration from Kerala declining 11% between 2013 and 2018.
