Sunday showers play spoilsport in City

Sudden showers on Sunday afternoon played spoilsport to many Bengalureans, who had stepped out of their homes in the wake of power cuts.

They also forecast thundershowers in the City and most parts of South Interior Karnataka over the next two days.The rain caused a drop in temperatures. The City recorded a maximum temperature of 29.4 degree Celsius and a minimum of 21.3 degree Celsius. From October 1 to 11, the City has received 33 mm rainfall, HAL Airport 98 mm and KIAL 62 mm.

The Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) control room received complaints of fallen tree branches in Chamarajpet, Ashoka Pillar at Jayanagar and near Mysuru Road flyover. Houses in Padarayanapura and Upparpet were flooded. While residents complained of sewage flow on Vittal Mallya Road, waterlogging was reported at St Marks Road. The downpour also affected TenderSure works on Residency Road.
