The two districts wherein the alert was not sounded are Kollam and Thiruvananthapuram. The Kerala government has also issued a trawling ban on Tuesday.
Kerala has seen a spell of heavy rain these past few days, but that's likely to change in the coming days. According to the IMD, the rain will start to abate in the state from Wednesday.
