Popular tourist destinations in Kerala's Thrissur district such as Athirappilly, Vazhachal and Malakkappara have been closed in the wake of heavy rains in the Chalakkudy Taluk, informed district collector Haritha V Kumar on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, the collector also issued a warning for people living along the Chalakkudy River as water level is expected to rise in the wake of a red alert issued at Sholayar.

"If rain continues, the dam's shutters will be raised and the discharge will reach the Chalakkudy River via Peringalkuthu Dam," said the collector.
