Bengaluru rains: Schools close and citizens wait for food packets

Several schools in Karnataka have declared holidays due to heavy rains this week; the state capital, Bengaluru, is on a ‘yellow alert’ for Thursday. Heavy rains hit the city on Tuesday and Wednesday, flooding over 3,000 homes and causing property damage worth lakhs of rupees.

Schools in districts such as Dakshina Kannada, Shivamogga, Mandya, and Mysuru have also declared holidays and sent students home. Anganavadis, primary schools, higher primary schools, and even high schools have reportedly declared holidays.

Bengaluru has received 114.6 mm of rain since Tuesday evening, according to the India Meteorological Department (IMD) – more than 100 mm in less than 12 hours. The weather service has issued a warning for today.

According to the Bengaluru Meteorological Centre, the minimum temperature could drop to 21.5 degrees Celsius on Thursday, with 93 percent humidity.

Heavy rain is also forecast for parts of north Bengaluru, including the Kempegowda International Airport.

Bengaluru is expected to have a cloudy sky for the next 24 to 48 hours, with a few isolated spells of rain and thundershowers, which could be heavy at times.

Twitter has also been inundated with images and videos of flooded roads and homes. “Heavy rainfall has wreaked havoc in Bengaluru, uprooting trees and flooding houses, and more rainfall is expected in the next 24 hours,” one user wrote alongside a photo of a house flooded with knee-deep water.

The city’s Horamavu area, which is part of the Mahadevapura zone, received the city’s highest rainfall, 155 mm.

Basavaraj Bommai, the chief minister of Karnataka, had stated that special arrangements would be made to provide food and other essential items to flood victims, but several people were reported to be without food until Wednesday.

According to reports, Jimmy Kimmel is quitting the Late Night programme.

According to reports, Jimmy Kimmel is thinking about leaving his late-night show to devote more time to his son Billy’s continuous struggle with congenital heart problems.

This week, a number of people with knowledge of the situation disclosed that Kimmel intends to leave Jimmy Kimmel Live! after his contract expires in 2025 in order to spend more time with his wife Molly McNearney, who co-head writes the show.

Kimmel’s choice, according to Radar Online, is a result of Billy’s health issues, especially in the wake of Billy’s most recent third open-heart surgery. But now he’s a “healthy kid.”

The Late Night presenter shared the news on Instagram in late May, saying, “We went into this experience with a lot of optimism and nearly as much fear and came out with a new valve inside a happy, healthy kid.”

Sources close to Radar Online claim that the Kimmels are getting ready to step back from the spotlight. According to an informant, Jimmy and his spouse prioritise their family over notoriety. They know what to do financially, so they’re prepared to step back from the spotlight and concentrate on what matters most.

“Life is too short to waste time on a job that brings you no happiness.”

Kimmel’s spokesperson denied the findings.
Even though Kimmel’s publicist denied any talks regarding his possible resignation and called the claim “silly,” especially in light of his son’s recent surgery.

“Though they’ll likely stay busy producing and developing shows behind the scenes, their main focus will be spending precious time with their family,” an insider was quoted by Perez Hilton.

Billy’s congenital heart issue was initially made public by Kimmel in 2017, not long after Billy was born, along with the difficulties his family was facing. Billy was born with a heart condition, according to an echocardiography, a type of cardiac sonography that was performed, Kimmel disclosed on his show.

“Tetralogy of Fallot associated with pulmonary atresia.” In essence, there is a hole in the wall separating his left and right sides of the heart, and the pulmonary valve was totally obstructed.

Three days after his birth, Billy had his first successful open-heart surgery. A few months later, he had another one. Billy had his third operation last month at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. This was his most recent procedure.
