Heavy rain lashed various parts of Kodagu on Monday. Napoklu, Bhagamandala, Talacauvery and surrounding areas experienced heavy shower.

Incessant rains had caused massive landslides in Hattihole, Madapura, Tantipala, Kandanakolli, Jodupala and second Monnangeri during the month of August. For the past two days, it has been raining heavily in these regions, creating panic among residents.

Madikeri-Somwarpet state highway, which was badly damaged in the August deluge, was opened for traffic recently after temporary repair.

Now, the road had been closed again as a precautionary measure, following rain. The vehicles have been moving on an alternative route.
