Kerala flood kills 87 people, 39 missing

Thiruvananthapuram: About eighty-seven people have died across 14 districts of flood-battered Kerala while 39 are missing, authorities said on Tuesday.

As many as 1,332 relief camps are currently operational in the state.

Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan has arrived in the flood affected areas of Wayanad and will visit Malappuram later in the day.

Torrential rains over the last few days in the state have led to many deaths and caused landslides in some districts. About 20 casualties have been recovered from Malappuram.

The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted “cloudy sky with a few spells of rain or thundershowers” for the next five days in the state.
