The discharge from KRS and Harangi dams receded marginally on Tuesday when compared to the outflow on Monday while the outflow from Kabini dam rose following increase in inflow into the dam.

The outflow from Harangi dam also abated and the discharge from the dam on Tuesday was 10,000 cusecs. The discharge was at the rate of 20,000 cusecs on Monday following rise in inflow due to heavy rains in its catchment areas.

The Kapila was flowing above the danger mark following heavy discharge from Kabini dam. Sri Parasurama Temple on the river bank, 16-pillared mantap, bathing ghat and other low-lying areas in Nanjangud were inundated by the overflowing river. Houses on the river bank are facing the danger of partial submergence if the outflow goes up.

The authorities have asked the people to move to safety over the threat of floods from the brimming river.
