Rains wreak havoc in Karnataka 

Meanwhile, like the state capital Bengaluru, torrential rains have caused havoc in different parts of Karnataka, with overflowing rivulets and floods affecting normal life, and causing damage to life and properties.

Acres of agricultural land, a number of houses, several bridges, and kilometres of roads are either washed away or inundated by flood water in several parts of north and south interior Karnataka.

There are reports about a farmer in Bagalkote district being washed away in the flooded Malaprabha river and a woman losing her life due to a wall collapse in Ballari district.

Livestock deaths have also been reported in several areas.
