BENGALURU: At least 300 houses were flooded, rendering tens of hundreds homeless, and 500 vehicles, including 100 cars, were washed away as heavy rain lashed south Bengaluru on Friday evening.
The havoc wreaked by the rain was severe in Gurudatta Layout and Dattatreya Nagar, near Hosakerehalli, and Pramod Layout in RR Nagar where storm water drains breached around 4pm, sending water gushing to houses. Bheemanakatte lake in RR Nagar overflowed, flooding 20 houses in the neighbourhood.
“We never expected so much rain. The downpour has put the carrying capacity of our SWDs to test,” BBMP commissioner Manjunath Prasad told TOI.
According to the weatherman, at least 15 localities across the city received more than 50mm of rain; Kengeri and RR Nagar topped the list with 103mm and 102mm respectively, as of 7pm. “A trough is over Bengaluru city. A yellow alert has been issued for the city indicating heavy rain,” the Met office said.
