Dear All,

As you are all aware, Karnataka pounded by rain, swept away by flood many towns and villages in North Karnataka marooned; rain batters several other parts of state; major road links cut off The worsening flood situation has so far claimed seven lives in Belagavi district alone even as the army is battling to rescue stranded people in many places.

The water level in the already overflowing Krishna river increased drastically on Wednesday with the release of more than 6 lakh cusecs of water from Maharashtra’s reservoirs, making it difficult to evacuate the affected people. Joint rescue teams of the Fire and Emergency, SDRF, NDRF and Army rescued 25,000+ people.

Making matters worse, fairly widespread moderate to heavy rain is expected in many districts of north-interior Karnataka over the next few days, as per the Karnataka State Natural Disaster Monitoring Centre forecast. Belagavi district is most likely to receive very heavy rain at isolated places over the next one or two days.
