Overnight Rains Batter Bengaluru; Yellow Alert Issued

Bengaluru: Heavy rain batteredĀ Bengaluru on Wednesday evening, flooding several arterial roads in the east, south and central part of the city, including the IT zone of Bellandur. Incessant rains in Bengaluru also led to a wall collapse near the Majestic that resulted in damaging several four-wheelers parked on the road.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued a yellow rainfall alert in Karnataka’s Bengaluru. The weather office has also predicted possible light rainfall for the city during the next five days.

Last month, Bengaluru experienced a flood-like situation after the city was reeled under severe waterlogging due to heavy rains which continued to affect traffic in several areas of the city.

Bengaluru residents continued to bear the brunt of severe waterlogging as water is yet to recede from roads and bylanes after Monday’s downpour. Many parts of the state are witnessing flood-like situations due to heavy rains.

Visuals from low-lying areas showed heavily waterlogged roads, with water flowing into open manholes, flooded basement parkings and damaged vehicles. Office-goers on way home had to take shelter at metro stations, as the rains started around 7.30 — the peak evening hour.
