Bengaluru: Heavy rains pummeled most parts of Karnataka leaving behind a trail of destruction.

Meanwhile, the search is on for the first standard schoolgirl, who was washed away in the floods while returning from school in Thogarihankal Gram Panchayat limits in Chikkamagaluru District last week.

She was accompanied by her elder brother and friends.

Also, the major rivers in the State have reached dangerous levels. Heavy downpour in the Cauvery Catchment area have sent the authorities of Kodagu district in a tizzy. As the Cauvery river is in full spate, cities and towns around it are fearing floods.

Kodagu District has experienced repeated mild earth tremors in the recent past and people are also fearing major landslides.

In North Karnataka region, Veda Ganga, Doodh Ganga, Krishna, Malaprabha rivers in Belagavi and surrounding region have seen rise in the water levels.
