The rescue operation for flood victims in Kerala is set to gain momentum with the Central government sanctioning the deployment of Army special forces and marine commandos along with 40 additional teams of the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) to assist the civilian administration.

Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan told the media here on Thursday that 30 helicopters of the Air Force and the Navy were being pressed into service, with four more kept on standby at the Sulur airbase. Two Coast Guard ships were also on their way to Kochi.
