The Outer Ring Road, major arterial roads and large swathes of Bengaluru have flooded once again after torrential rains pounded the city on Sunday night, in what may turn out to be a cloudburst on the wettest day on record for the city.
The Outer Ring Road has flooded once again near the RMZ Ecospace technology park, just days after witnessing some of the worst waterlogging in recent memory.
So great was the force of rainwater that it gushed into some stations as choked manholes overflowed.
“I have not seen such heavy rain this monsoon,” said Nataraj K, a resident of Mahalakshmi Layout. The manhole outside the metro station, he said, was overflowing with full force. Rain-struck passengers had to take shelter on the stairs of metro stations.
The thunderstorm began around 8 pm and lashed almost all parts of the city.
