Central team to arrive in Kerala on Aug 7 to assess damage caused by floods
Though there was a respite from rain for the past two days, flood water has not yet receded in many places in Kuttanad in Alappuzha district.
The inter-ministerial team headed by a joint secretary in the Ministry of Home Affairs would arrive in Kochi and visit the worst-affected Alappuzha, Kottayam and other neighboring districts, officials in the Revenue Ministry said today.
Meanwhile, about 9,000 people were still staying in relief camps and of them, more than 7,000 were in Alappuzha district.
Government machinery continued to be on alert to meet the situation arising out of the possibility of release of excess water from the Idukki reservoir where the water level stood at 2,396.12 feet this morning.
