Thamarassery : At least 12 people were missing and 3 died following a landslide on Thursday that cascaded down the terraced slopes of Kattipara in Thamarassery. Rescue operations are still going on at the place. As per the initial reports, Abdul Salims daugher Dilna(9) , her brother and another kid are the ones who died. 11 members from three family had also gone missing after heavy rains. Reports also pointed that four houses are under the soil after the landslide.

The family members of Karinchola native Hassan and Abdul Rahman had gone missing after the heavy rain and landslide. Officials have asked people to avoid travel during night in the hilly areas of Idukki district . The Bharathapuzha, one of the major rivers in the state, was in spate, as also the Bhavni and Siruvani in Palakkad district, the officials said.

The Idukki and Mullaperiyar reservoirs received good inflows as the catchment areas have been receiving heavy rains for the past four days.

The water level in Idukki dam touched 2,324.50 feet, nearly half its capacity, while that in Mullaperiyar stood at 117 feet. Shutters of major resorvoirs in Idukki district were opened after the water level crossed the maxmimum limit.
