Mangalore, Feb 17: The people of Mangalore woke up to pouring rains on Sunday February 17. The entire city received heavy rainfall, accompanied by thunder at a few places.

The unexpected showers that first hit the coastal region about three days back have brought welcome respite from the scorching heat.

However, the sudden rain has also resulted in several areas in the city and outskirts getting inundated, causing much inconvenience to commuters and pedestrians.

Several areas were choked with water up to the knee level.

In a rare sight for February, people were seen making their way through the heavy rains with colourful umbrellas. As it had rained throughout the night too, not many were not caught unawares.

The rain subsided as the day progressed, but the overcast conditions remained.

On Saturday February 16, Subramanya received highest the rainfall, with Bajpe and Moodbidri too getting drenched.

B C road experienced only drizzles while in Belthangady, Guruvayanakere, Kadaba, Beltangady it poured heavily.

Parts of Udupi too experienced moderate rainfall on Saturday.

    I really wonder how even the educated lot who have commented so positively in a a praising fashion,but in actual it is nothing to feel happy about as it sure is a climatic change. Beware guys this could actually be rainy season and not in June when you need one.

    Daya, your pictures were fantastic. I liked to see the unexpected rains at this time of the year. It really looked like monsoons with the heavy downpour and some people with umbrellas and some drenching in the rain without umbrella. It must have rained very hard as I could see from the pictures that some places were flooded. Only thing some fruits like mango and cashew will be damaged whereby the prices will shoot up.

    Good day to all!

    I remembered the song "I love a rainy night" by Eddie Rabbitt. How true for Mangalore.
    I strongly recommend the readers of Daijiworld to watch the video on You tube.Then someone can press disagree!.
    I love Mangalore on a rainy day!, and it is a beautiful sight (paraphrasing Mr.Rabbitt).

    Oh my goodness ! Is it June ? May be rain came by mistake, instead of coming in May or June, now it is spoiling all Mango or Cashew fruits. Beetle nuts will be spoiled. Oh Devare, nammannu dayavittu kapadi. namma paapa kshma madiri. Nammage nasta mada bediri. God, thank you very much.
