Several parts of Shivamogga, Hassan and Chikkamagaluru districts received heavy rains in the last two days. Many roads were inundated, low-lying areas were flooded and continuous rains in the morning prompted the Hassan district administration to declare a holiday for schools up to Class 10 on Wednesday.

Hirisave tank at Hirisave in Channarayapatna taluk was overflowing on Wednesday morning. This was unexpected before the onset of the monsoon. Many villagers visited the tank and took pictures and videos of the overflowing tank.
