Bengaluru: Severe rainstorms disturbed daily life and caused property damage in multiple regions. Heavy rains are experienced in Uttara Kannada, Belagavi, Udupi, Shivamogga, Chikmagalur, Kodagu, and Mysuru districts.
In certain locations, rivers and lakes are flooding. Two individuals in Tumkur who went fishing in the rain perished, while several portions of the Dakshina Kannada district are in danger of overflowing. Many rivers in Chikmagalur are flowing at levels over the point of danger.

On Sunday, two men met a watery grave in Tumakuru: Harish, age 31, and Yogish, age 36, died in the lake while fishing at Kadaba Lake in the Gubbi Taluk. The police and fire brigade arrived at the scene and evacuated the deceased after learning of the situation early in the morning. The mountainous region of Hassan had severe rain, which caused the Mookanamane waterfall’s water flow to rapidly surge. As he watched the water surrounding him and the waterfall, a visitor got trapped due to the sudden rise in the water flow. Sanjay, a traveler who had traveled to Sakaleshpur from Bangalore with his peers, was submerged. Sanjay was then given a shield to protect him, and his friends and the police tied a rope around him to keep him out of harm’s way.

In Mudigere and Chikkamagalur, it is pouring severely. Every river is overflowing. The Tunga-Bhadra and Hemavati rivers’ water flows have increased. Flooding is a possibility in the Hemavati River’s bank communities of Bakki and Kittalegante since the river is flowing over the danger level. In Chamarajanagar, Biligiri Ranganabetta is covered in dense fog and invites travelers. Due to the constant rain, the iconic Biligiri Rangana hill is shrouded in mist. The sight of rain and fog enthralls tourists.

In the Davanagere district, it has been continuously pouring for the last eight days, and it has been strongly raining in certain areas since this morning. People in the district were unable to leave their homes due to the constant rain.

The Mugera Kudru region is at risk of flooding because of the Dakshina Kannada district’s ongoing rain. Heavy rains have caused the Falguni River’s water level to rise, river water to infiltrate the residential area, and disruptions to daily life. River water pouring onto agricultural land has caused farmers to incur significant losses.
The severe rains in the mountainous hills have hampered Sringeri, Karkala road traffic in Chikkamagaluru. The Tunga River is now flowing more water. Since two o’clock, National Highway 169 has experienced delays caused by the increased flow of Tunga water on the Karkala-Srinngeri route.
Triveni Sangama in Bhagamandala, in the Kodagu district, was flooded by heavy rains. At its peak, the Harangi reservoir held 20 thousand cusecs of water being released into the river.
