Downpour continues in NK; outflow from Krishna basin dams set to rise

With rain not relenting in the districts of Western Maharashtra and North Karnataka, the flood situation in northern Karnataka has further worsened. The situation is likely to aggravate as water discharge from reservoirs in the Krishna basin of Maharashtra may increase to 4 lakh cusecs.
With swelling rivers inundating villages, bridges cum barrages cutting-off connectivity from mainland, the region witnessed closure of NH 48 (Pune-Bengaluru stretch) and also suspension of train services in the Londa-Tinaighat section of the Hubballi Division of South Western Railway. While several trains were partially cancelled, few were rescheduled and others diverted via alternative routes. Quick restoration work by the railway staff resulted in resumption of train services on the route by evening.
In the worst-affected Belagavi district, 8,012 people and 3,826 heads of cattle have been shifted to safer locations. On Tuesday, 1,398 people and 580 heads of cattle took shelter in 23 relief centres. Belagavi Deputy Commissioner S.B. Bommanahalli said 96 villages have been affected, and crops on 80,590 hectares damaged.
