Bengaluru was left grappling with the aftermath of relentless downpours on Monday, as heavy rain pounded various parts of the city, causing waterlogging and disrupting daily life. Among the affected areas were Malleswaram, Shantinagar, Mysore Bank, and Town Hall, where residents and commuters were met with flooded roads and snarled traffic. Social media platforms were flooded with videos capturing the deluge, showcasing the extent of the chaos caused by the incessant rainfall.

Despite a brief respite from the downpour in the evening, the relief was short-lived as the rain resumed its relentless assault on the city later in the night. The Srirampur and Lingarjpura underpasses succumbed to the deluge, exacerbating the already dire situation and adding to the woes of the city’s residents.

In a bid to assess the extent of the damage and oversee relief efforts, Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister DK Shivakumar made an unannounced visit to the war room of the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) head office at Hudson Circle well past midnight. Shivakumar closely examined the disaster management and relief operations undertaken by the civic body, underscoring the gravity of the situation and the need for swift action to mitigate the impact of the heavy rainfall.

As the rain wreaked havoc on the city, several key traffic routes bore the brunt of the deluge, leading to significant disruptions in vehicular movement. A traffic advisory issued in the wake of the heavy rainfall highlighted the challenges faced by commuters across various parts of Bengaluru. Areas such as Veerannapalya, Gunjur, Kasturinagar on ORR road, and the Kogilu junction experienced sluggish traffic flow due to waterlogged roads and poor road conditions, prompting diversions and causing inconvenience to the residents.
