Mangaluru Heavy rains continued to lash Dakshina Kannada and Udupi district on Sunday as well. An elderly woman and her grandson were killed when a compound wall fell following heavy rain, on a house at Hebbarabail in Puttur on Saturday. The deceased are Parvathi (65) and her grandson Dhanush (12). The compound wall belongs to Bharathi Bhat.

Another woman died when she accidentally fell into overflowing well at Ananthadi in Sudekattemar in Vittal. The deceased is Kamala (60). The water in the well had entered the courtyard of the house. When she went to draw water from the well, she accidentally slipped and fell and died.

The rain fury has forced the authorities in Belthangady, Sullia, Puttur and Moodibdri to declare a holiday for schools.

With the river Nandini river overflowing, 18 members from five families were rescued by fire service personnel using boats, at Soorinje in Surathkal. The water had entered inside their houses and inmates were sitting on the roof of their houses till the rescue team reached the spot.

Heavy rain lashed Udupi district as well. The low-lying areas have submerged on both sides of Nittur and Karavali Junction. As rainwater had entered inside the houses, about 60 to 70 people were shifted to safer areas. Schools and colleges in some remote areas had declared holidays. The waterlogging of Madhwaraj Layout in Kodankoor affected the residents. About 70 people were shifted with the help of Malpe fishermen.

Water has entered Rajangann on Sri Krishna Mutt premises. As a result, several vehicles were inundated. Over 100 houses near Vidyodaya School, Matadabettu, Badagubettu and Bannanje experienced artificial floods.

The stretch at the Kalsanka bridge near the under-construction national highway in Padubidri was blocked for nearly two hours as the rainwater submerged the low-lying areas, thus flooding the road. All the vehicles from Mangaluru to Udupi were diverted to the route via Belmannu.
