Flood

Heavy rain and sea erosion wreaked havoc in different parts of the district. Incessant rain that lashed the district caused extensive damage to life and properties. Low-lying areas in the district have been inundated. Kuttanad, a below sea level area spread across Alappuzha and Kottyam districts , is literally swallowed by rain water disrupting the life and destroying all the paddy, vegetable and fish cultivation .
The situation is also not much different in other parts of the district. Chengannur, Ambalappuzha, Cherthala, and Karthikappally Taluks had also been hit worse.
The District Administration had taken all the mitigative measures to reduce the loss and protect the life and wealth of the people. The District Disaster Management Authority is leading the relief activities in the affected area.

Special Control room had been functional in the District HQ 24×7.
