The public has been advised to stay away from water bodies as the shutters of the Banasurasagar dam has been opened.

Excess water entering the Chengalthodu canal from Periyar river adjacent to CIAL premises led to water being accumulated at the parking bay and spillover of the drainage canal.

However, in 1992, all the three shutters was opened in the month of October. Following the opening of two more shutters of Idduki dam, district authorities have started evacuating 140 families in the Cheruthoni town. The dam shutters were opened at 5 am, 6 am and 8 am.They were opened 1 metre each after the water level reached maximum storage capacity.

A red alert has been issued in Wayanad in the wake of rain havoc.

All of the dam's gates being opened will heighten concerns of extreme flooding along the banks of the rapidly swelling Periyar.

Earlier State Power Minister M.M. Mani, who hails from Idukki, said: "Things are pretty bad and I have visited the affected areas on Thursday morning".

Kerala chief minister Pinyari Vijayan held an emergency meeting with senior officials of the police and revenue departments on Friday morning - the second in as many days - to take a stock of the devastation caused by rain and floods.
