Bengaluru Roads Flooded; No Access To Drinking Water

Bengaluru: Due to the city’s transformation into a lake by overnight rainfall, several areas of Bengaluru were underwater on Monday.

Due to the intense rain, many residential areas and major roads are clogged, causing the authorities to deploy boats and rafts to evacuate people.

Bengaluru Urban district received over 148.5 mm rainfall in the last 24 hours, the Karnataka State Natural Disaster Monitoring Center reported.

The most affected areas are said to be Bellandur, Sarjapur Road, Whitefield, Outer Ring Road, and BEML Layout.

The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) predicted rain and thunderstorms over the next seven days after Bengaluru received a total 131.6 mm of rain in the previous 24 hours, making Monday the wettest September day since 2014.

Bengaluru has also received a yellow alert in areas; Chikkaballapur, Chikkamagalur, Chitradurga, Davanagere, Hassan, Kolar, Ramnagar, Kodagu, Chamarajanagar, Mandya, Mysuru, Shivamogga and Tumakuru districts.

The tech capital is now struggling to access safe drinking water. The drinking water supply in the city will be stopped for two days as the pumping station in the Mandya district is flooded.

Several visuals are coming up showing vehicles submerged in water and commuters trying to wade through it.
