Bengaluru: Arrival operations at the Cochin International Airport Ltd (CIAL) resumed nearly two hours after it was suspended, following a rise in water level in the Periyar river.

‘As the situation improved, we resumed all operations from 3.05 pm’ a CIAL spokesperson said.

The CIAL had earlier stopped arrival operations from 1.10 pm, as a precautionary measure. 

Kerala is on the edge following an unprecedented rise in rainfall over the last 24 hours that has caused heavy landslides and flooding, killing 20 people so far.

The government is forced to open almost 22 small and big dams in the state, most of them after more than two decades, if not for the first time in history.
