Kerala's lessons from the 2018 flood tragedy rang out loud today as shutters of Idukki reservoir's Cherothoni dam -- one of the largest in Asia -- were opened. Sirens warned people downstream, even though the amount of water released -- 100 cumecs (cubic meters per second) -- was limited to just 5 per cent compared to then. Around 60 families evacuated from low lying areas.
