Heavy rains in Bengaluru leave roads waterlogged, cars damaged

Bengaluru/IBNS: Heavy rains lashed Bengaluru on Wednesday evening, leading to a flood-like situation on several arterial roads in the east, south and central part of the city, including the IT zone of Bellandur. 

According to the Meteorological Department, 59 mm of rainfall was recorded in Rajamahal Guttahalli in the northern part of the city.

The weather office has issued a yellow alert, which is indicative of heavy rain, and said it will continue for the next three days.

The low-lying areas in the city have been waterlogged, with water flowing into open manholes, flooded basement parking and damaged vehicles.

Office-goers returning home were impacted as they had to take shelter at metro stations. The rains started around 7.30 PM, the peak evening hour.

The city was battered by heavy floods last month after rains for three straight days that set off a political war between the ruling BJP and the Congress.

Parts of the city where global IT companies and home-grown start-ups are located, were underwater, which took days to recede.
