Parts of north Karnataka continued to receive heavy rains on Wednesday, leading to floods in the river Krishna.

The road link between Athani and Rabakavi has been cut-off with the overflowing of Maheshavadagi barrage. Residents of villages in the area have been using boats to reach Rabakavi and Banahatti. Bagalkot district administration has asked the people living on the river banks to shift to safer places.

The areas around Tamba in Bijapur district received heavy rains. There was heavy inflow into the River Varada in Haveri district. Rains battered the coastal parts of Uttara Kannada district too. However, there was only a drizzle in Sirsi, Siddapur, Yellapur, Mundagod and Haliyal taluks.

The Tungabhadra reservoir in Bellary district received 9,703 cusecs of water on Wednesday and the storage increased to 5.71 tmc ft (maximum level 133 tmc ft). However, the inflow into the Alamatti reservoir decreased to 15,440 cusecs. The water level in the reservoir stood at 507.60 metre against the full level of 519.6 metre.

Rains took a break in the coastal districts on Wednesday. While rivers have swollen, water has not reached the danger level.

There have been no reports of any major rain-related damage from the districts. But, sea erosion has intensified at Trasi near Byndoor, endangering the tourist spot.
The rain-affected dalit families in Bajpe have been sheltered in the Taluk Panchayat office. Those who sustained serious injuries in the Tuesday’s house collapse are being treated at Wenlock Hospital.

The inflow into Linganamakki reservoir witnessed a drastic decline on Wednesday. The water level stood at 1759.90 feet (maximum: 1,819 feet) whereas the inflow declined to 13,514 cusecs. There was a marginal increase in the inflow into the Tunga and Bhadra reservoirs.
