News video: Kerala’s Idukki dam reopens to maintain water level

Idukki (Kerala), Aug 10 (ANI): Rains continue to lash Idukki district of Kerala affecting normal life.

The incessant rains caused rivers in the region to swell, urging the authorities to open the shutters of as many as 22 dams. The inundation was so severe that the administration was compelled to open the sluice gates of Cheruthoni dam on Idukki reservoir.

The dam at the Idukki reservoir which was opened on August 09 for the first time in 26 years was reopened this morning to maintain the water level.

In the last 48 hours, the death toll due to flooding has touched 26, causing a trail of destruction across the district in the southern state of Kerala.
