As a precautionary measure, Deputy Commissioner Mir Anis Ahmed has declared holiday for schools and colleges in the district, on Friday and Saturday too. However, the PU supplementary examinations will be conducted as per the schedule.

Even though rains have receded in Bhagamandala, the movement of vehicles has been stopped at Ayyangeri road, owing to the flow of water.

Heavy rain has caused landslides and damage to houses in many areas of Madikeri. Vehicles plying on Boyikeri road were stranded as a tree uprooted.
