Heavy rains on Tuesday evening in Bengaluru led to several problems including flooding and waterlogging at Nayandahalli junction and Bommanahalli on Hosur Road.
Located just outside the boundaries of the Kadugodi ward, the road is partly under the jurisdiction of the Seegehalli Gram Panchayat.
The residents here told us that waterlogging is an issue every year, and especially at this spot for the last three years.
Waterlogging also led to traffic snarls at major junctions like Rasulgarh, Bomikhal, Vani Vihar and Nayapalli.
In view of the heavy rain which is set to lash the district under Titli impact, authorites are asked to to deploy dewatering motor pump sets at low-lying areas for smooth discharge of drain water.
Control rooms have been opened in every block and essential commodities and sand bags have been stocked, she added.
Protesting waterlogging problems in the villages, hundreds of villagers, affected by IOCL refinery in Paradip, blocked the main road to IOCL near Rangiagada bridge on Wednesday.
The Madras HC directed the Chennai Corporation to file a detailed status report with regard to steps taken to prevent waterlogging.
