Heavy rains wreak havoc in Ballari district

A couple had a tough time in crossing the flooded railway underbridge in Satyanarayanapet, Ballari, on Wednesday.

Heavy rain which lashed Ballari city for around three hours late on Tuesday night caused havoc, affecting movement of vehicles.

Rainwater accumulated at several places hindering movement of vehicles. There was knee-deep water on Stadium Road and beneath the railway bridge in Satyanarayanapet. Water flooded the mini zoo in the city and deers were seen wading through water.

Assistant Commissioner Ramesh Kona Reddy said that there had been no reports of any damage due to the rain.

Meanwhile, Molakalmuru taluk in Chitradurga district too received heavy rain for whole night on Tuesday. Water gushed into the drug warehouse of the government veterinary hospital in Rayapura village, damaging medicines.
