Mangaluru: Heavy rains continued to wreak havoc in Dakshina Kannada district with landslides and flooding reported from a few places here on Monday June 22.

In Kananady a huge tree was uprooted disrupting vehicular traffic on the stretch. Two electricity poles were damaged, and a car and an autorickshaw parked under the tree were damaged. Traffic movement was also disrupted at Bejai Battagudda owing to a minor landslide.

Water-logging, owing to lack of stormwater drains posed several inconvenience to motorists and pedestrians at several places namely Pandeshwara, Kottara Chowki and Sultan Battery areas. Moreover the under-construction drainage works and footpaths, which have been halted due to the rains are creating problems for the traffic and smooth flow of water. A house located at Mascarenhas Garden on Falnir road was inundated with the dirty water due to an overflowing drain. Few houses were damaged because of rains.

Meanwhile, a holiday was declared for schools and PU colleges on July 23 as meteorological department has predicted heavy rains and declared a red alert in the district. Fishermen have also been advised against entering the seas for the next few days.

In the last 24 hours – ending 8 am on Monday – the district received an average of 66.8 mm rainfall. Mangaluru taluk received the highest of 76.1 mm, followed by Puttur with 75 mm, Bantwal with 66.5 mm, Belthangady with 65.2 mm, and Sullia getting 51 mm rainfall.
