Mid-summer rain accompanied by gusty winds and hailstorm created havoc in Yadgir district on Thursday.

As many as 19 sheep and a dog were killed after being struck by lightning in Halegera village in Yadgir taluk.

The sheep belonged to Hanumantha of Halagera. The incident occurred when they were grazing.

At least 50 bags of paddy stored in a house were damaged completely.

About 50 kg of wheat and jowar flour was completely soaked after rainwater entered the flour mill after a tin-shed was blown away in Sagar village in Shahapur taluk of the district, according to Mahadevappa Halli, owner of the flour mill.

Rain has created havoc in the district for the second time in a week. Villagers alleged that officials from the Revenue Department or other departments have not reached them yet to study the loss due to rain, lightning and hailstorm.

According to village sources, several trees were uprooted in Sagar village and residents themselves were trying to clear them from the ground. However, none from the gram panchayat or the Revenue Department rushed to the spot to help.

Meanwhile, Yadgir Rural Police visited Halagera, where 19 sheep and a dog were killed after being struck by lightning, and completed formalities.
