Commuters in the twin district had a harrowing time due to severe traffic snarls.The downpour which started at around 9.30 AM continued for over 7 hours, with no respite in sight.

Schools and colleges in the twin coastal districts of Dakshina Kannada and Udupi will remain closed for 2 days , announced respective district administrations.

Civic authorities, including corporation officials, deputy commissioners’ (Dakshina Kannada, Udupi) are coordinating rescue and relief work on a war footing.

Power supply was suspended in inundated areas in many parts to ensure safety. Certain patients stranded in some hospitals have been moved to other hospitals due to power disruptions.
