Heavy rains have been lashing Chittoor district, once again, due to the low pressure area in Bay of Bengal. Schools remained shut today due to the downpour. Low-lying areas in Tirupati and Sri Kalahasti are inundated, causing great inconvenience to the devotees visiting the temple towns on the occasion of Kartika Masam. The reservoirs are already full and with rise in water levels it has become necessary to open the gates, the officials warned.
