ERODE: Heavy rains in western districts of Namakkal, Erode, Salem, Coimbatore and Tirupur since Friday night has resulted in huge inflows into Bhavani river and prompting the authorities to bar tourists visiting Kodiveri dam in Erode district on Saturday.

Kodiveri dam near here is a popular spot of tourists attraction, drawing people from neighbouring districts, besides Kerala and Karnataka. But with heavy rains lashing places like Gobi, Nambiyur and Sathyamangalam, the Bhavani river is carrying over 5,000 cusecs of water, overflowing the water falls at Koeiveri dam.

 

Sensing the danger, the PWD as a precautionary measure, have banned entry of tourists to Kodiveri dam site and have advised them not to take a bath in the waterfalls nor go for pleasure boating in coracles in the reservoir area.

Cautionary boards and barricades have been placed on the road leading to the dam and tourists headed for Kodiveri dam are being diverted by the police, sources said.

Bangalapudur police have strengthened security arrangements in the area, while people in villages along the banks of Bhavani river are being informed of a possible flood threat through loudspeakers and 'tandora'.

The big Sanjeevarayan lake near Gobichettipalayam has filled up after six years, thanks to the heavy rains in the area and villages near it have been alerted of possible floods should the water spillover.
