PROMPT ACTION: Rescue team shifts a flood victim to safety in Kurnool on Friday.

Residents remove water from their huts in Bagalkot district, north Karnataka yesterday. Heavy rains over the last three days have wreaked havoc in many parts of Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh
Bangalore: More than 130 people have died and hundreds are being evacuated due to heavy rains which have lashed the southern states of Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh over the past three days, officials said. 
Hundreds of people trapped by the floodwaters were stranded on rooftops waiting to be rescued. “Over 40,000 houses have been damaged,” an official at the Karnataka revenue ministry said. The water level of rivers Budhabalanga, Baitarani and Brahmani is inching towards the danger mark at a few places. 
Drought to flood in 2 days- 65 missing in andhra, 106 die in karnataka
Officials said a depression over the Bay of Bengal had emptied 860mm of rainwater into Kurnool and Mahboobnagar districts, causing the Tungabhadra and Krishna inflows to smash a 100-year-old record. Districts reporting a 60 per cent deficit monsoon were now surplus by 100 per cent.
Hundreds of devotees were stranded in the southern pilgrim town of Mantralayam, where the pontiff of the Raghavendra Swamy Mutt, Suchistrananda Theertha, was evacuated by a government helicopter after floodwaters entered the shrine. The starving pilgrims spent a sleepless night on rooftops, at bus stands and guesthouses.

Power supply has been shut in four districts to prevent electrocutions, and drinking water supply has been stopped after rainwater entered the filters.Kurnool town of Andhra Pradesh saw Military chopper in action to rescue 25000 people trapped in flooded waters and city is in danger of submergence with four feet of water and the level is expected to rise by another four feet by midnight and yet another four feet by tomorrow afternoon.

Mantralayam MLA B Balanagi Reddy was himself stuck on top of his house with a large number of people and was desperately seeking help, official sources said.Helicopters have been pressed into the service for rescue operations. The Indian Air Force yesterday helped save 44 lives trapped in the flood waters in Bellary and Raichur districts of Karnatka. The IAF personnel evacuated about 12 people caught in neck-level deep water in low-lying areas of the Bellary district and dropped them at safe places and saved 32 lives from Mantralayam in Raichur district. In Andhra Pradesh, the situation is equally grim in Krishna, Kurnool and Mahabubnagar districts, where thousands of people are still stranded in floodwaters due to heavy rains that battered the state for the past four days. Heavy rain claimed 18 lives.

By Saturday afternoon, Kurnool town is likely to be sumberged under as much as 15-20 feet of water, putting into peril the lives of over two lakh people. Many were feared dead.
