Rain continues to cool Mysuru, Kodagu

Mysuru – As predicted by the Indian Meteorological Department, it rained again in Mysuru yesterday night and the rain was accompanied by lightning and thunder.

It also rained in most parts of Kodagu bringing relief to people who were worried about rising temperature and sinking groundwater levels. The rain, however, did not result in water flow to Harangi reservoir in Kodagu and then to Krishnaraja Sagar in Mandya as most of the water will be evaporated in this hot weather.

It began raining at around 8.30 pm in Mysuru and the showers lasted for more than one hour. Gusty winds accompanied the rain. A tree crashed on the house of one Ravi in Kuvempunagar damaging the roof. Two trees fell on the Paduvana Road at T.K. Layout. Several branches of trees fell near Maruthi Temple in T.K. Layout and Sharadadevinagar Second Stage, blocking traffic.

Electric wires were snapped, disrupting power supply in Mysuru City Corporation (MCC) Ward No. 10 and the MCC Abhaya teams carried out road clearing operations. Several low-lying areas including T.K. Layout, Janata Nagar complained of water-logging while a manhole burst open behind Kamakshi Hospital in Saraswathipuram causing severe inconvenience to the residents.


A woman was injured when a speeding vehicle hit her when she was walking on the road in the rain near Maruthi Temple Circle yesterday night.

The woman has been identified as Dr. Nirmala and she was earlier working in Kamakshi Hospital.

Passers-by, who saw the accident, rushed her to a private hospital where she is recuperating. The vehicle that caused the accident, however, sped away. Corporator Nandeesh Preetham visited the hospital and enquired about Dr. Nirmala’s health who is being treated in the ICU. She is said to be out of danger.
