Idukki: As the heavy rain continues, an orange alert has been declared in the Idukki dam on Monday. The water level reached 2401 ft (Monday evening 5 pm) and a red alert will be declared if the water level reaches 2402 ft. Electricity minister K Krishnankutty informed about this through a Facebook post.
Due to continuous rainfall in the catchment area of Idukki Dam and inflow of water from Mullaperiyar Dam, the water level in the dam is gradually rising. People living on the river banks are informed to remain vigilant.
