Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan: Don’t be Panic, please co operate

Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan has requested people to cooperate with alerts given by the authorities in connection with the heavy downpour and floods in the State.  The death tolls have been 256 since the Monsoon started on May 29. During this intense phase, 65 lives have been lost. On Thursday, at Nenmara in Palakkadu district. 8 members of a family were killed due to landslip.
The State is going through an extremely grave situation. Most of the villages are heavily affected. 58 dams of the KSEB and 22 dams of the Water Resources Department have touched the maximum level.  This is an extra ordinary situation that has not happened in Kerala in the Past.
All kinds of interventions and rescue measures are in full swing. When an alert is issued at a particular area, people of that place must move away to safer places. It is dangerous to stick to the place seeing that it is not affected by the flood. Later it may be flooded and rescue operations will be more difficult. So, once a warning is issued, people must move to safer places without any delay.
Those who are living on the downstream of Periyar in Ernakulam district and Chalakkudi in Thrissur district must be more cautious. The Water level of Periyar may rise up to one metre. Chalakkudi river also faces the same situation. Taking this seriously, those who live on the downstream of these rivers (within one kilometre from the banks) must move to safer places.
Those live within half kilometre from the flooded area of Aluva in Ernakulam district must also be on alert. If instructed to move away, they must move to safer places. For this, the cooperation of the people is necessary. Forces have been deployed in areas where urgent help is needed. Instructions have been issued to save stranded people. Water level may rise at Kuttanandu{Alappuzha district}.  Kottayam, Chengannur {Alappuzha district},  and Thiruvalla {Pathanamthitta district}  are also vulnerable to water level rise. “Special intervention and care is being given to Ranni, Aranmula and Kozhenchery at Pathanamthitta district.” The Chief Minister said.
Rescue operations in full swing. More forces will be deployed.
The Chief Minister said that the Government was using all possible measures for rescue operations. As per the demands of the State, more forces will reach the State immediately. 52 teams comprising of Army, Navy, Air Force, Fire Force, NDRF and Coast Guard are already engaged in the rescue process. 12 column Army, 8 helicopters of the Air Force,5 diving teams of navy, 3 teams and one Helicopter of Coast Guard are operational now.
The Chief Minister spoke to the Prime Minister, Union Home Minister, and Defence Minister on Thursday and was offered of all assistance.  Instructions have been issued to officers in connection with this.
The Chief Secretary convened a video conference with  The Central Cabinet Secretary and discussed matters that have to be implemented. 40 additional teams of the NDRF will reach the state. 200 Life buoys and 250 life jackets will be given. More jackets have been demanded. Special Force of the Army equipped with more rescue instruments will be deployed here. 10 helicopters have been supplied by the Airforce. 10 more will reach the State by Thursday afternoon.
All boats available in the State will be used for rescue operations. Motor boats are also sought for this purpose.
Much attention is being given to health care. Medical camps are needed  in this situation. Community kitchens will start functioning at camps.
4 helicopters of Air Force will be sanctioned. 4 helicopters of the navy will also reach. Marine Commandos will reach the flooded areas. 2 ships of the Coast Guard have started their journey to Kochi. 2 Gemini teams will arrive. 5 more will come. More helicopters are promised from the part of Forces. Dry fruit packets will be distributed by the Forces. Packaged drinking water will be distributed by the Indian Railway.
A committee, including the senior officers of Kerala and Tamilnadu is constituted to resolve the practical issues related to the opening of Mullaperiyar dam. The President of the Committee is the Chairman of the Central water Commission. PSC has been requested to reschedule interviews. Government servants will continue their rescue measures on holidays as well. Work on holidays will be counted as duty. Electricity and communication will be ensured.

Dear Malayali and Non-Malayali friends, Please listen, take a couple of minutes and read.

We are in need of HELP.

Kerala is reeling from one of its worst flooding disasters in decades.

The death toll rises to 40 as six people lose their lives in the last 12 hours.

Red Alert sounded in 12 of the 14 districts, Hilly districts Wayanad and Idukky have been cut-off from the rest of the state due to landslides on the ghat roads .

Shutters of 33 Dams (of 39 ) have been opened, including that of Mullapperiyar, of which the control is wvested with the TN Government.

41 Rivers (out of 44) are overflowing well past the red mark .

Cochin International Airport has been closed till 2 pm, August 18 as the runway has been engulfed.

Your favorite summer destination,the lush green Munnar has been submerged. KSRTC and Railway have cancelled many of the bus and train services.

Hundreds of houses and establishments across the state have been submerged already .Roads and bridges are either broken or swallowed up by the flood water.

Nearly 40 thousand people were shifted to rehabilitation camps.Hundreds of people left their hard earned properties and took refuge at safer places with their relatives..

The entire system is fighting back under the efficient leadership of our Chief Minister. Keeping all differences aside,the congress lead opposition is working in complete harmony with the Government which is a rare expression of the true spirit of democracy and good governance.

We salute all the kind hearted people who extended love and support. Vishnu, a migrant worker from Maharashtra making a living by selling blankets in Kerala, walked into a relief camp and handed over all the fifty blankets he had. Kerala bows it's head and salutes him.

Film star Kamal Hassan contributed ₹25 lakhs to Chief Minister's relief fund.Tamil actors Karthi and Soorya donated ₹25 lakhs and Vijay TV also promised an amount of ₹25 lakhs. These are only a few names from the list of many who promised a hand to Kerala .

So far, the loss is estimated as ₹8,000 crores (till yesterday) and the state requested the centre to sanction ₹1,220 crores as an immediate relief.

Friends, this is the time to act. We are in need of help. Please contribute generously to the Chief Minister's relief fund. The battle we are fighting is manifolded.
