Meanwhile, an orange alert has been sounded for the Idukki dam due to heavy rains in the catchment area. The water level reached 2401 ft. The district administration decided to declare the orange alert as the water level in the reservoir was gradually rising due to the inflow of water from the Mullaperiyar Dam.
