Some sections of roads were also removed and trees uprooted.

To evacuate people trapped at Kollam and in other coastal areas, fishing boats are used.

Numerous people are missing, and it is possible that this number could go up.

In different areas of the state have been established refuge centers.

There are many floods in Kerala due to heavy rains. The loss of natural protections such as wetlands or lakes has led to an increase in urbanisation.

In 2018, some 400 people died and more than one million others were displaced by the worst flooding in Kerala in a century.

A federal assessment was done that same year, and it found that 44 of its rivers were among the top 10 most at risk from flooding.
