Though the IMD has sounded a yellow alert in certain districts, since there is a possibility of heavy rains in hilly regions, caution must be taken like in the instance of an orange alert. Due to the incessant rains received over the past couple of days, people living near low-lying areas, river banks, mudslide and landslide-prone areas and hilly regions must exercise extreme caution.
