    Effects of rain were felt on the morning of October 9th as well

    Rains were caused by cyclonic circulation above mean sea level

    Manyata Tech Park also faced water logging

Many areas of Bengaluru were subject to deterioration in infrastructure due to heavy rains that began at 8 PM on October 8th and lasted until 6 AM the next morning. “We will know the full rainfall amount by Monday morning. But we know that this rain is due to the cyclonic circulation occurring 3.1 km above mean sea level over northwestern parts of Tamil Nadu adjoining south interior Karnataka,”A Prasad, Scientist ‘D’ at the meteorological centre said as per a report in the Deccan Herald

Water logging was witnessed on the streets of several areas. This was particularly more marked along roads leading to KR Puram wherein the water was filled up to the height of 1.5 to 2 feet. Waterlogging was noted on Kanakapura Road, Bannerghatta Road,Thanisandra Main Road, Veeranapalya, Banaswadi Main Road in the east and Manyata Tech Park. This had not only caused the stagnation of water but also led to lengthy traffic jams. The problem has carried over to the next day as well. The water logging is making it hard for drivers to traverse the roads. This has increased the time for commuting for those leaving early in the morning for their work.
