At least ten people were killed and several others injured due to heavy rains and floods in 12 northwest and coastal districts of Karnataka, an official said on Thursday.

With the southwest monsoon peaking, incessant rains severely disrupted normal life in the affected districts, as schools and colleges, markets and offices were shut and thousands of people stranded due to damage to road and rail network in the region.

 "Nearly 44,000 people have been evacuated from 51 flood-hit taluks, with about 40,180 from Belagavi alone. Of them 16,875 are sheltered in 272 relief camps across the affected districts," said the official citing spot reports.
