Mysuru: As heavy rain continued to lash Kodagu for the sixth consecutive day, 67 localities remained waterlogged in the district on Saturday. Six more relief camps were started and  533 more families shifted to them.

In all, 1,350 families are being housed in 40 relief camps in the district.


Although search operations continued by rescue teams amidst heavy rain, there was no sign of the eight people, including an eight months pregnant woman,  who are missing.

They are suspected to be buried under mud after four or five houses collapsed under landslides in Heggala village,Virajpet taluk on Friday.

But 254 more people were rescued by the police, three teams of the NDRF, one column of the Indian army, revenue staff,  and teams of the General Thimmayya Adventure Academy, River Rafting Academy and veterinary department. So far 501 people have been rescued in the region.


All 16 roads,  including the State Highway 91 and the  Konanooru-Virajpet-Maakutta road connecting Kerala, remained blocked due to landslides, tree fall and floods.

The seven people , who died in  landslides on Friday, including five men in Korangala , near Bagamandala and two women  in Heggala village in Virajpet taluk, were cremated on Saturday.

“Had they not got stuck under the metal almirah ,which fell on them, my wife and daughter would have survived. The almirah fell on them just as they were running out of the house. It happened hardly a few moments after my son and I ran out of the house when the hill started sliding,” said Mr Paramesh who lost his wife Mamatha (40) and daughter Likitha (15) in Heggala village.


KRS: The water level at the KRS dam touched 116.40 feet on Saturday. The inflow was 160191 cusecs and the outflow 106594 cusecs
