KERALA: A high alert has been issued in Kerala’s Wayanad district ahead of the opening of sluice gates of Banasurasagar dam. More than 100,000 people across the state have been evacuated so far, Indian media reports said.

Kerala’s dam safety authority plans to open sluice gates of many swollen dams to ease pressure on reservoirs following heavy rain over the past few days while the state is reeling under a devastating flood, officials said Saturday.

Authorities sounded a high alert in Wayanad district ahead of opening the sluice gates of Banasurasagar dam, third largest dam in the state.

The release of water from dams could mean more trouble for the flood-hit state where the death toll in last four days crossed 40 while and more than 50 are feared trapped under mud and debris triggered by landslides.
