While the sudden downpour on Wednesday afternoon brought much-needed relief from the heat for Bengalureans, many arterial roads were left inundated. 

Traffic was moving at a snail's pace on New Airport Road in Kacharakanahalli due to a stormwater drain overflowing. A bus of Infant's Travels carrying employees of JP Morgan got stuck after a part of the road caved in.

"The drainage and gas pipeline work has been going on for the last few months. But they haven't done it properly. That is why the vehicle caved in," Raveendra, a resident said.

An electricity line was cut after a tree branch fell on it.  Locals say the area gets flooded whenever it rains.

Nancy Mathew, a shopkeeper said, "As soon as it rains, the entire area is submerged. This is the situation every year. Authorities have done nothing to solve this issue".

Authorities along with locals removed drainage slabs to reduce the water blockage.
