Bridge at Raravi in Siruguppa taluk submerged
Owing to heavy rain that occurred on Saturday evening in Siruguppa and Bellary taluks and surrounding places, including the neighbouring Andhra Pradesh, Vedavati River, popularly known as Hagari, is in spate.
As the water is flowing over the bridge at Raravi in Siruguppa taluk and at the Yellammana Halla downstream, vehicular traffic between Siruguppa and Adoni via Raravi had to be deviated through Kudadarahal, according to the information reaching here on Sunday.
A private bus was reportedly stranded while crossing the bridge. However, no casualties were reported. The bus was pulled out with the help of villagers. Meanwhile, several irrigation pumpsets fixed on either side of river banks in Raravi, Baggur, Chanakanur, Karchiganur, Gajiginahal, Nagalapur, Sridhargadde, Tondehal and Rampur, have been washed away in the flash floods. Farmers, with the help of bullocks, were trying recover some pumpsets.
