Due to persistent heavy rains that have caused gridlock in numerous districts of the city since Tuesday morning, Bengaluru is suffering from significant waterlogging.

Bengaluru residents continue to experience severe waterlogging since the water that covered roads and byways on Monday has not yet subsided. Due to the severe rainfall, several areas of the state are experiencing flooding-like conditions.

Due to Bengaluru’s severe waterlogging caused by the nonstop, heavy rains, several IT employees in India’s silicon valley used tractors on Monday to go to their places of employment.

Yemalur, which is near the HAL Airport, is now completely under water. On Monday, several local residents working for IT businesses used tractors to get to their offices.

According to Dharwad Deputy Commissioner Gurudatt Hegade, due to the flood situation in Taluka, Annigeri and Kundgol educational institutions received a holiday.

After giving a state-wide assessment, Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai said that it had been decided to grant Rs 300 crore to address the current crisis and preserve the city’s fundamental infrastructure.

CM convened a meeting early on Monday to discuss rain and floods in the state with the Bangalore Water Supply & Sewerage Board (BWSSB), deputy commissioners of 15 districts, and top officials.

“The central team will go to Bengaluru on Tuesday night to assess the state’s flooding and rain conditions. The government will meet with the members of the team when a document has been issued “said Bommai

For the upcoming four days, interior south and north Karnataka could expect severe rainfall. In the final week of August, the state got 144 percent more rain than normal, and in the first five days of this month, 51 percent more rain than normal. In areas affected by the drought, the water table has risen. The state has not had as much rain in 42 years.
