UAE issues travel warning after Kerala floods

The Consulate General of the UAE in Kerala has issued a travel advisory to UAE citizens in the Indian state or intending to visit the state to exercise extreme caution after heavy rains caused damaging floods.

The advisory urges UAE citizens to follow instructions issued by Indian authorities.

In a second advisory, the Consulate, based in the state capital of Thiruvananthapuram, has urged UAE citizens visiting Kerala to register with the diplomatic post so that it can keep track of them and ensure their safety and welfare, state news agency WAM reported.
The Consulate has asked its nationals to contact its dedicated phone number 00919087777737 in case of any emergency.

The travel warning comes as authorities in India take steps to ease difficulties faced by travellers from the Gulf to Kerala as a result of floods.

Two dozen people are reported to have been killed across Kerala from the floods and nine districts in the state are under "red alert".
