One notable incident involved a collapsed compound wall that damaged two two-wheelers. Additionally, torrential rain led to the flooding of two houses and a fertilizer godown at Uddeboranahalli, attributed to overflowing drains. Locals lamented the destruction of fertilizers worth lakhs of rupees, holding the National Highway Authority of India accountable for incomplete projects that obstructed drainage systems, exacerbating the flooding.
