A rough sea alert has been issued for the Kerala and south Tamil Nadu coast for Monday, 13 May, according to the Kerala State Disaster Management Authority (KSDMA).

The alert, sourced from the Indian National Centre for Ocean Information Services (INCOIS), indicates a potential rough sea condition near the shore along the Kerala coast from 11.30 am to 11.30 pm on 13 May, 2024. This condition is attributed to the effect of high-period (15 – 18 sec) swell waves, with heights ranging from 0.5 to 1.2 metres.

Similarly, there is a forecast for rough sea conditions nearshore along the Tamil Nadu coast during the same period on Monday. The rough sea is anticipated due to high period (15 – 17 sec) swell waves, with heights varying between 0.7 to 1.1 metres.
