Heavy rainfall in Madikeri

Madikeri: Madikeri and surrounding areas received good rainfall on Monday and there were signs of monsoon picking up in the district in the next few days. The city received moderate to heavy rainfall on Monday.

Tough time

People scampered for cover in the sudden downpour. Pedestrians had a tough time negotiating a broken footpath near the private bus-stand.

The lower portion of the footpath had caved in several days ago, but the City Municipal Council authorities appear to have turned a blind eye to it.
