Kolhapur city and parts of the district witnessed heavy rains today, which led to swelling of major rivers.
Talukas located in the western parts of the district, including Gaganbawda, Chandgad, Radhanagari, Panhala, were lashed by heavy showers, that affected the normal life in these parts.
As a result of the continuous downpour, the water level of Panchganga river that flows near Kolhapur city has been rising steadily. Water-logging in low-lying areas in the city affected the normal life to some extent.
The Anuskura mountain pass has been shut for vehicles following incidents of landslides.
