Moodbidri: Sudden, off-season thunder-showers greeted many parts of the district on Tuesday.
Manjunath (25), hailing from Tamil Nadu and working in a stone-crushing unit in Mariyadi, was hit by lightning. He has been admitted to a private hospital here.
Lightning also hit a house in Vishal Nagar, belonging to Zuleika, creating cracks in the walls.
Electrical poles got uprooted as a result of storm-showers and fell on the houses of Sandhya in Poopadikallu in Kadandale village and of Janaki in Navagrama in Beluvai village in the surroundings. The houses have been damaged.
Revenue officials have visited the spots and assessed the damage.
