Charmadi witnessed hailstorms, while strong winds and thunder were reported in Neri. Rainfall persisted around Ujire and Dharamsthala.

Highway Disruptions and Traffic Woes:

Ongoing development work on the National Highway in the Nidigal-Situ-Somantadka area led to road blockages due to heavy mud, causing inconvenience to motorists. Additionally, a tanker skidding on a dirt road in Ambadtyaru added to traffic congestion.

In Kanakamajalu, a tree and an electric pole fell onto the road due to evening winds and rain, resulting in traffic blockages.

Coastal areas, including Kundapura, observed rough seas with maximum wave heights ranging from 3 to 4 feet on Thursday and Friday. Wind speeds reached up to 14 to 21 km per hour during the day.

Forecast for Coming Days
