It is indeed a tough time for Kerala, with the heavy rains and floods affecting many parts of the state. Many regions in the Ernakulam district, including Aluva and North Paravur regions, have been heavily affected and the rescue operations are going on at full swing.
Earlier, reports had surfaced that popular actor Salim Kumar had been left stranded inside his house and was seeking for help. The actor, who resides in the North Paravur region, had informed about the same to media. While talking to manorama news.com over phone yesterday (Agust 17, 2018), he informed that he along with over 30 people have been stranded inside the house.
Salim Kumar mentioned that he and his family were planning to move out of the house on Thursday evening itself when the area was getting flooded. Later, a good number of people had approached his house seeking help and hence he decided to give them shelter and stayed with them.
The actor also informed that the house has been submerged in water till the first floor and hence, they've moved to the second floor. He also added that the water level was rising at that moment of time and if it entered the second floor, they will have to move to the terrace but it wouldn't be feasible for the old-aged people to climb up to the terrace.
