Today is forecast to bring more torrential rain to the state. Rain is more likely to fall in the south central districts.
From Kollam to Thrissur, seven districts have been placed under orange alert, and the remaining seven districts are under yellow alert. Fishing is still prohibited throughout the Kerala-Lakshadweep coast due to the possibility of severe seas.
An air trough across Tamilnadu and a low pressure system that extends over the Bay of Bengal are to blame for the rains.
