There have been heavy rains in Karnataka since Sunday which has consequently led to a rise in water levels on dams across Karnataka. 
 
 
 
The authorities told media that water levels in reservoirs and dams in coastal, south interior areas and Malnad region have been steadily rising following inflows from heavy rains across the state.
 
 
 
This is mainly due to a rise in water levels in the rivers like Kali, Tunga and Bhadra. These rivers have filled the water reservoirs Linganamakki, Supa, Varahi, Harangi, and Hemavathi which have further led to water rise in dams KRS and Kabini across Cauvery and Ghataprabha, Malaprabha and Almatti on Krishna.
 
 
 
The problem is not over yet as the temperature forecasts that Bengaluru is likely to see cloudy skies with maximum rains and minimum temperatures for some more days.
