Rain pain: Heavy downpour creates havoc in Bengaluru

Water takes days to recede from roads; almost  all low-lying areas flooded. The heavy rain that lashed the city leftmost low-lying areas and even key arterial roads inundated, throwing life out of gear. It also meant traffic snarls throughout the day. The rate at which the water receded has been very slow, as most stormwater drains are full, their retention capacity reduced, and the water is not flowing into them. It’s been a challenge to hold tutorials in the pouring rain every day. We are concerned with water stagnation and air and waterborne diseases. Heena Kousar Class 7
