Swollen Netravati river raises flood threat in Bantwal


Team Udayavani, Aug 9, 2020, 12:31 PM IST

Bantwal: Many areas of Bantwal taluk has been submerged in water after the water level in Netravati has risen beyond the danger level due to heavy and incessant rains that are lashing the Western Ghats.

Many areas adjacent to the banks of river Netravati in the taluk, including Goodinabali, Bantwal Road, Baddakatte, Ajila Mogaru, Aaladka Padpu, and Bogodi are submerged in water.

Roads have submerged at Aladka mini bridge, Bantwal Bastipadpu road, and Goodinabali Bantwal road. Vehicular traffic is prohibited on these roads.

Many families are shifted to safer places. Though the taluk administration had opened relief centers, none of the families showed interest in residing in these centers and have gone to their relatives’ houses. Taluk administration officers have informed that no loss of life of human being or cattle is reported so far.
