Monsoon Can Be The Worst Time For A Trip To Kerala And Here’s Why

Kerala is called as God’s own country and visiting this place is on the list of every traveller. The state is welcoming all around the year but monsoon season is not really the right time to be there. Though the natural beauty of the place is something way more than mesmerising in the monsoon, most parts of the state is mostly under red alert. This year, the Met department received heavy to extremely heavy rainfall in most parts of the state. 

Met Warning Should Be Taken Seriously

Three of the 12 fatalities were caused by landslides in the districts of Kannur, Kottayam, and Idukki during the most recent round of heavy monsoon rain, according to official sources. Kerala’s central and northern districts, which have already been severely impacted by nonstop rain since Sunday, have been placed on red alert.The state government of Kerala on Tuesday issued a red alert in eight out of fourteen districts for the upcoming three days due to the Met department’s forecast of severe-to-extremely heavy rainfall in the majority of the state. Pinarayi Vijayan, the chief minister, stated on Tuesday that the Met department’s warning should be taken seriously.
