Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) today issued a red alert for Malappuram, Kozhikode, and Kannur in Kerala. The death toll in Kerala floods increased to 95 on Tuesday with an "extremely heavy rain" warning issued for three districts.

The Kerala government is doing its best to help the families affected from the rain and (relatives) of those killed," he said while pointing out that a UN report has pegged the losses from last year's deluge in the state at Rs 31,000 crore.

People in the affected parts in Wayanad and Malappuram districts were "yet to come out of the shock," following the damage there, Vijayan said. Monsoon fury was witnessed in Kerala in the last few days, with the torrential downpour leading to landslides and inundation, throwing normal life out of gear in the southern state.
