THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: After a brief lull, rains started lashing several parts of Kerala since this morning, posing problems to the relief operations undertaken by multiple agencies in the flood and landslides hit regions. However, the water level in the Idukki and Idamalayar reservoirs reduced, bringing some relief, with the authorities saying there was no need for any panic for people living downstream, officials said.

There were no fresh casualties reported since yesterday and the toll in the rain-related incidents since the current monsoon fury from August 8 stood at 37, they said. Union home minister Rajnath Singh will undertake an aerial survey of some flood-hit areas and hold discussions with chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan, camping in Kochi, later on Sunday.
