District Collector A. Geetha has ordered that potholes on State and national highways in Kozhikode be repaired within three days in view of the heavy rain that has been lashing the district for the past one week.

The project director and regional officer of the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) and the executive engineer of the Public Works department have been directed to level potholes and ensure free flow of water to prevent waterlogging in the district. They are also to check roads under their control once in two weeks and submit reports to the District Disaster Management Authority. Failure to comply with the order may result in disciplinary action, the Collector warned.

Meanwhile, there was no reprieve from rain-related disasters in the district on Friday even though the rate of rainfall has come down.
