Haveri: Thousands of people are stranded in flood-hit regions of Haveri with only one rescue boat that is operational in the region. The entire district has one paddle boat that can use used in the strong current, leaving thousands of people to endure heavy rain and floods. Swollen rivers have turned villages into islands. Rescue operations have become increasingly difficult without the availability of motorboats.
