Over 200 electricity poles damaged in rain in Mysuru | Mysuru News


Mysuru: Heavy rain accompanied by gusty winds lashed the city on Sunday night uprooting several trees and damaging electricity poles, leading to disruption of power supply in many places. Fortunately, there are no casualities.
The rain and wind started at around 11 pm on Sunday. Just a few minutes later, the power got disconnected and the entire city plunged into darkness.
Chamundeshwari Electricity Supply Corporation (CESC) said the rain had damaged nearly 200 electric poles after huge tree branches fell on electricity cables.
A senior CESC officer said 50% of the damaged poles have been replaced by new ones. “In some areas where work is still being done, power will be restored by Tuesday afternoon,” he said.
Meanwhile, Mysuru City Corporation’s Abhaya teams are clearing the uprooted trees and branches from the road. Major damages to trees were reported in Hunsur Road near Kalamandira, Kuvempunagar Double Road, New Khantaraja Urs Road, Javaregowda Park and near Saraswathi Theatre at Saraswathipuram.
Heavy rain was also reported in Nanjangud, HD Kote, Hunsur and T Narasipura.
