KumaradharaMangaluru : Heavy rain in the Western Ghats and the Kukke Subrahmanya area since two days has resulted in the Puttur-Kaniyoor-Panja- Kukke Subrahmanya Road submerging under the Kumaradhara water near the temple town on Wednesday.

As a result, traffic on the road between the temple town and Balpa has come to a halt. People from Kukke Subrahmanya had to reach Panja via Kadaba on Kadaba-Uppinangady Road. The Snana Ghatta (bathing place) on the river side in the temple town was also submerged under water. The bathrooms and dressing rooms built for tourists at the Snana Ghatta were also under water.

The old bridge connecting Kukke Subrahmanya with Kulkunda, Gundia and Kadaba remained submerged under water. But it did not affect traffic as a new elevated bridge has been built on the side. Hence, pilgrims travelling between Dharmasthala and Kukke Subrahmanya did not face any problem.

Meanwhile, Sullia recorded 78.3 mm rainfall in 24 hours ended at 8 a.m. on Wednesday. Belthangady recorded 72.8 mm, Bantwal 59.8 mm, Puttur 59 mm and Mangaluru received 43.8 mm rainfall during the period.

The water level in the Netravathi at Bantwal stood at 5.5 m against the danger level of 8.5 m.
