IMD predicts more rains in Kalyana Karnataka region, Mantralayam still submerged
The temple town Mantralayam was marooned as water from Nallavanka vagu entered into the town.
Heavy rain in the intervening night of Saturday and Sunday in Raichur and Adoni regions triggered flash floods in Mantralaya bringing the temple town to a standstill.
