Can't imagine, Nature's fury, Roads became rivers in an hour of heavy showers. Even if Bangy had an acceptable level of administration, it would have proven too less for such a showdown as today.

OMG!! What has happened to my dear old City? Despite heavy rains, I never remember Bangalore flooded like this. Nothing like Chennai where I have had horrible experiences galore getting caught in Monsoons during Diwali Times.

Many Road which had a decent drainage system at the side of the roads, have got paved with new foot paths and the drainage holes closed. Where will all the water all go?

Wife parks car at my mothers place on Lavelle Road (no proper parkig anywhere else) and goes to Bounce. Get a call

Please pick me up
Did n't you take your car?
Yes - but I cannot step out of Bounce since it is 0.5 ft of water.
Drive over and get near pavement and she leaps in

This is in an area with highest land prices!

Best is Sunny's - no one can get in or out

Oh My God. Look at that. Takes some nerves to drive through that scene. BTW isn't this the road that ends in front of Forum and passes Oracle Lexington Towers ?

Surprisingly no one has written about the rains last night. The place I live in Yeshwanthpur was completely flooded. Also the IISC campus compound wall (near divanarapalya) was broken due to the rain. No pics sorry

And it has been raining most of all evening and night, it is still raining as I type ! However, since I stay in an area which is at the crest of a small hillock, no flooding problems for me ! I'm sure this thread will be 'flooded' tomorrow though with hard stories !

Wife is stuck under Dairy Circle bridge as I type. She will require 45 minutes to complete 1 kms of road. Absolutely pathetic.

I am stuck in my office in EC. My friend who left at 8pm has not even reached Silk Board! Looks like a long night for me at work. :(

I managed to reach home in the evening without much problem. But it seems major problem happened after 8 PM only. A friend of mine got stuck on Bannerghatta road. According to him, suddenly water level rose to nearly knee deep, close to Pride apartments.

Phew, managed to reach home by 8Pm, after spending a good hour n a quarter from Mg road to Vijayanagar!

Guess many would have come across this in the papers today, but here it is for others benefit -

Note from the Team-BHP Support: Post edited. Please note that it is now imperative for you to upload pictures directly to the Team-BHP Server. Click here to view our simple help article on uploading pictures.

The bus passengers were physically lifted to safety from the half-submerged bus near the overbridge on Subedar Chatram road, by night beat police. In Malleswaram, the beating rain brought down the compound wall of the railway station onto the tracks at around10 pm. The Hampi Express, which left Bangalore City railway station for Hubli around 10.45 pm reached Malleswaram station five minutes later. When the train was about to leave after a one-minute stoppage, the driver felt something was amiss on the tracks and decided not to proceed. Closer examination by railway staff with the help of powerful torches revealed that a considerable portion of the wall was on the tracks. The train was then taken back to the City station. It will now proceed to Yeshwantpur railway station and head to Hubli on another track.

Lauding the driver, a top railway official said, "There would have definitely been a derailment if the driver had not noticed it." Railway staff quicky cleared the tracks and train movement was restored by midnight.

Rain water gushed into houses in low-lying areas of Nandini layout, Yeshwanthpura, RMV second stage, Mattikere, Basaveshwarnagar, Vijaynagar and Padmanabhagar. A tree came crashing down on a road between Mekhri Circle and Jayamahal. However it was cleared immediately. The rain triggered traffic jams in and around Majestic area, K R Puram, Hosur Road and Yeshwanthpur. According to the Meteorology Department, the City received 30.8 mm rainfall. Weather in City will be generally cloudy and rain or thunder showers are likely on Thursday, added the sources.

Close call for bus, train passengers

First (a few years back) a family with their car were washed away in rains in Bangalore.

This month, a couple of kids were washed away.

Yesterday, an entire house (well built, RC, pucca house) went down the drain in Bangalore See today's 'The Hindu' Page 1.

Welcome to Bangalore !!

Yeah. I read the article in Hindu today. Poor Family who lived there losing all their valuables. That House Owner should be penalised and made to pay all the cost building unauthorised houses that close to the canal

Report on the Chaos
The Hindu : Karnataka / Bangalore News : Rain leaves citizens groping in the dark

Today is the start of a 3-day weekend, going to be great fun at Majestic.
