THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: IMD has predicted heavy rains in Kerala for the coming hours. An orange alert has been announced in Kozhikode, Wayanad, Kannur and Kasaragod districts and a yellow alert in Alappuzha and Ernakulam to Malappuram districts today.

Meanwhile, high waves and strong winds are likely along the Kerala coast due to Kallakadal. Move indoors immediately at the first sign of lightning. Keep windows and doors closed during periods of strong winds and thunderstorms. Stay away from doors and windows. Stay inside the building and try not to touch the wall or floor as much as possible.

  • Unplug household appliances. Avoid proximity to electrical appliances during thunderstorms.
  • Avoid using the telephone during thunderstorms. It is okay to use a mobile phone. If the weather is cloudy, avoid playing outdoors and on the terrace.
  • Do not stand under trees during thunderstorms. Do not park vehicles under trees. Stay inside the vehicle during thunderstorms and remain safe. Avoid travelling on vehicles like bicycles, bikes, and tractors during thunderstorms and seek shelter in a safe building until the thunderstorm ends.
  • Avoid taking a bath during a thunderstorm. Also, avoid collecting water from taps. Electricity from lightning may travel through the pipe.
