Incessant rain in city

Staff Reporter

BANGALORE: Incessant showers mostly kept Bangaloreans indoors on Thursday. Although the showers were not heavy enough to cause major traffic disruptions, trees were uprooted in some parts of the city.

The city and several parts of the State are likely to receive rain for two more days under the influence of low pressure in the South West Bay and the Central Arabian Sea, according to Meteorological Department officials here.

Roadside trees came crashing down on C.M.H. Road, near B.R.V. Parade Grounds, Sajjan Rao Circle and Pillanna Gardens. Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BMP) staff removed the uprooted trees and tree branches and cleared the roads for traffic.

In Anepalya on Hosur Road, BMP personnel flushed out water from flooded roads. Traffic was disrupted for sometime in the area.

In some low-lying areas, vehicle-users had to drive through waterlogged roads, while residents had to take precautions to ensure that rainwater did not enter their houses.
