Karnataka`s death toll due to natural disasters rises to 9, with 3 missing. 

After Maharashtra, Karnataka is on the row. Nine people were killed and three others are missing in the flood-affected regions of Karnataka as heavy rain lashed the state, revenue minister R Ashok told reporters on Sunday. The weather department has issued a red alert for seven districts in the coastal areas of Karnataka, predicting three more days of rainfall.

The state disaster management officials earlier confirmed three casualties in rain-related incidents. Among the deaths reported since July 22, four are from Uttara Kannada district, two from Belagavi, and one each from Chikkamagaluru, Dharwad, and Kodagu.

Thousands of people were evacuated from danger zones after eight landslides, including one that derailed a train, were witnessed a day prior.

Karnataka chief minister BS Yediyurappa on Saturday directed the district in-charge ministers to stay put in their respective districts and monitor the relief and rescue operations in the areas.
