Heavy rain in Kerala, three die of lightning in Tvm
Thiruvananthapuram: Three men died here after they were struck by lightning on Tuesday, a day that saw parts of Kerala receiving heavy rain.

Thampanoor has been inundated following heavy rain which started in the afternoon. The Thiruvananthapuram District Collector has issued a warning to the residents.

Travel to hilly regions, including Ponmudy, has been restricted. People residing at lowlands have been asked to keep a strict vigil.

The Collector ordered district, taluk and village-level officials to return to respective offices.

Heavy rain continues to lash various districts in the state.
