The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD), Bengaluru on Wednesday said that rains would continue across several regions of Karnataka.

“Isolated to widespread very light to light rains likely over SIK (south interior Karnataka) districts and isolated to scattered very light to light rains likely over Malnad and coastal Karnataka regions and dry weather very likely to prevail over NIK (north interior Karnataka) region,” according to a statement from the state disaster management authorities. The forecast is until Thursday morning.

Rains are also expected in Bengaluru city which has suffered a significant damage in recent weeks due to heavy and unseasonal downpour, inundating entire neighbourhoods across India’s IT capital.

“Widespread very light to light rains likely over BBMP (Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike) area. Forecast for next 2 days (ending at 08:30 am of 13.11.2021). Widespread light to moderate rains with isolated places heavy rains likely,” according to the disaster management authorities

The poor quality of civic infrastructure, rapid and unplanned expansion, lack of long-term vision and emphasis on short-term fixes among other issues have compounded the problems for Bengaluru and its ability to deal with downpours.

The rains have claimed at least 21 lives across Karnataka in the month of October.

The death toll in neighbouring Tamil Nadu continues to rise as heavy downpour is expected to continue across the south-east coast of the country.

At least 12 people are reported to have died in Tamil Nadu, ANI reported, quoting the state’s Revenue and Disaster Management Minister KKSSR Ramachandran,
