Sudden rain surprises

TOUGH GOING:The deluge throws traffic out of gear.

BANGALORE: A sudden deluge in the south-western parts of the city such as Rajarajeshwarinagar, Kengeri, Vijayanagar, Mysore Road and Chandra layout crippled traffic flow and flooded several busy thoroughfares post sunset on Tuesday.

The downpour lasted for about three hours from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and the drizzle continued late into the night.

For over two hours, the two-km stretch of Mysore Road between Rajarajeshwarinagar and the Gali Anjaneya temple, came under almost one-and-a-half feet of water. An eyewitness said car tyres were fully under water and two-wheeler riders had a tough time keeping their balance.

Ongoing work

This stretch was particularly affected owing to the ongoing works on a storm water drain right opposite the Rajarajeshwarinagar arch.

Meteorological Department officials told The Hindu that a trough of low pressure had formed at mean sea level overt the South West Bay off the Tamil Nadu Coast, which triggered precipitation in several parts. In addition, there was an upper air cyclonic circulation over southwest parts of the city.
