Roofs thrown away, trees fall, pendal collapses
Rainstorm creates havoc
Kolar:
Rainstorm on Friday afternoon wrecked havoc in Arahalli village at Kolar taluk, causing damage of property to the tune of Rs 15 lakh.


Several houses, sericulture sheds and trees were damaged following heavy rains with storm that lashed the village for nearly three hours.

Roofs of nearly seven to eight sericulture sheds were thrown away and more than 10 residential buildings were damaged. The impact was such that the roofs had fallen nearly 150 meter away.

The roofs of the houses that belonged to Sunandamma, Munishamigowda, Venkatachalapati , Shanka rachari, Gurappa, Chowdappa, Kalachari, Sriramappa and Anjanappa were also damaged as the storm raged for hours.  The roofs of sericulture sheds that belonged to Ravi and Narasimhappa had fallen in the neighbour’s yard.
Several trees including mango and bana trees were uprooted and the crops were lost in many farms.

A huge peepal tree in the Anjaneyaswamy temple premises was shattered into three pieces. Fortunately no casuality is reported and none have sustained injuries.

The village leader Munishamigowda saidthe damage caused by the he rainstorm is estimated around Rs 15 lakh.

Pendal collapsed

A huge pendal erected at Kurubarapet since three days for celebrating the  Dodda Dyavara jatre collapsed due to strong wind and rains.

 Minister for Energy K S Ishwarappa, MLC D S Veeraiah, BJP leader Lakshmaiah and other leaders of Kuruba community were sitting on a dais in front of the Beereshwar temple and were waiting for former deputy chief minister Siddaramaiah.

As soon as the pendal fell people who had gathered for the programme ran helter-skelter.  Fortunately no one was injured. 

Also it did not rain following the gutsy wind, which prevented further damage.

The guests were shifted to a safe place. The programme was cancelled, to the disppointment of the crowd.
However Siddaramaiah arrived later and along with MLA Vathur Prakash visited the temple and offered prayers.
