Karnataka withdraws flood alert for Bengaluru, rains till June 9

According to reports, Karnataka State Natural Disaster Monitoring Centre on Sunday had issued flood alert for Bengaluru for 24 hours. However, within hours the alert was withdrawn by the centre.


Director-in-charge of IMD, CS Patil reportedly said, "These are short and heavy spells of rainfall. However, the thundershowers may not be as powerful as it was predicted. Till 8.30 am today, 6.2 mm rainfall was recorded in Bengaluru city. Since the monsoon had taken everyone by surprise last time, we were only issuing alerts so that precautionary measures could be put in place."


A 25-year-old labourer fell victim to the rains on Saturday, while his family was left injured. Another man named, Imran Nadaf was washed away in the rain on the Pune-Bengaluru highway on Saturday. Karnataka CM HD Kumaraswamy has reportedly announced a compensation of Rs 5 lakh to the victims of the rain.


According to the centre's managing director, Srinivas Reddy reportedly said that rains are to be expected after 2 pm every day from June 3 to June 9.
