Udupi: Heavy rains have been reported from across coastal Karnataka for the past two days. On Sunday, the rains caused major disruption to life.

Uninterrupted rains from Saturday morning created a flood-like situation in many rural areas in the Udupi and Dakshina Kannada district.

Except for agricultural activities, all other industries saw disruption in work due to power cuts.

This was because 107 electric wire poles, 23 transformers and many power cables were toppled in due to sustained winds on Saturday.

The loss from these damages was estimated to be Rs 36 lakhs, reported MESCOM.

The rain and winds also caused other property damages.

Treefall in many places caused disruptions in vehicular traffic. A tree also fell on a house in Olakadu, damaging its roof.

In Panaje near Puttur in Dakshina Kannada district, a hillock suffered a landslide. While a man was electrocuted near Kinnigoli after coming in contact with a live wire.
