CHERUTHONI: A slight decrease has been recorded in the water level of Idukki dam. The water level was at 2401.04 feet on Saturday morning. Water-level was 2401.70 feet on Friday night. The level of water decreased for the first time after all five shutters were opened. It has been decided that the shutters need to be closed only when the level of water reaches 2400 feet. Rain has reduced in the catchment area of the dam. Water-level has decreased in Bhoothathaankettu dam as well. The amount of water flowing out of the Kakki dam has also been reduced. The warning that has been issued for the people residing on the coastal areas of Periyaar is still active. Cheruthoni bus stand was destroyed in strong current. A six feet pit has been formed in the bus stand. Cheruthoni bridge is also in danger.  

The water level has risen two feet in several places though only one foot has increased in Aluva.  This resulted in relief. 300 member team of the disaster management authority is sitting prepared in Aluva. The Army and coast guard are also fully prepared to face an emergency situation.
