Bengaluru floods: Heavy rains continue to batter the city, here's how social media is reacting

Bellandur, Sarjapura Road, Whitefield, the Outer Ring Road, and BEML Layout are reportedly the worst damaged regions.

On Monday, many residents of Bengaluru were forced to endure a terrifying ordeal as torrential rains rendered several neighbourhoods inaccessible, causing officials to dispatch rafts to rescue residents. Twitter users are posting images and videos of flooded streets. Bellandur, Sarjapura Road, Whitefield, the Outer Ring Road, and BEML Layout are reportedly the worst damaged regions.

Many people's plans for the weekend were ruined when they encountered hours-long delays in traffic due to flooded roads and the refusal of taxi and car services to transport them. Three separate locations, including Adugodi and Tannery Road, reported tree collapses.

Days after seeing some of the worst waterlogging in recent memory, the Outer Ring Road has flooded again in the area of the RMZ Ecospace technology park.

Due to the impending high winds, fisherman have been warned to stay off the water. North Karnataka will be pounded by rain during the next four days. This includes the districts of Bidar, Kalaburagi, Vijayapura, Gadag, Dharwad, Haveri, and Davanagere.
