The worst floods in almost a century have hit the southern Indian state of Kerala, killing at least 79 people and displacing thousands. Landslides and bridge collapses have been reported, as well as hundreds of homes and crop fields that have been destroyed.

The Cochin International Airport has also been closed due to excessive water on site. Schools in all 14 districts of Kerala have been closed and some districts are preventing tourists from visiting amid safety concerns.

Rescue operations are under way with the federal government sending additional forces to assist in relief efforts.

India's Metrological Department has forecast heavy rain in Kerala for the next two days, and has issued a red alert for 12 out of its 14 districts.
