With the widening of National Highway under progress, several drains got clogged and rainwater entered into many houses. The low lying areas like Bannaje, Shiribeedu, Gundibailu, Kalsanka were flooded with the single rain. However, the CMC workers were seen making way for the easy flow of the rainwater throughout the day.

The low-lying areas in Kalyanapura, Uppoor, Ambagilu and Balaipade too experienced artificial floods. The soil dumped on either side of the road for widening got flowed into the main road, causing inconvenience to the vehicle users.

Turns turtle

A bullet-tanker slipped off the road and turned turtle on National Highway-75 (former NH 48) near Adyar-Kannur on Friday morning.

The accident occurred, when the driver of the HP gas tanker, heading towards Bangalore from the city, lost control over the vehicle due to the slippery road surface.

However, there was no leakage of the gas and the driver has escaped unhurt.
A tree which fell on road at Ekkar disrupted the movement of vehicles for four hours.
