Patna, Sep 9(ANI): Heavy rains accompanied by strong wind drenched Patna and its neighbourhood on Wednesday, which severely disrupted life as it disrupted traffic and uprooted trees blocking vehicular movement.
"We are facing a lot of problems in Patna as it's been raining since morning. Office goers could not reach office in time because trees have blocked the road," said Vivek Kumar, a local.
The city received about 16.6 mm rainwater, while wind blew at a speed of 40 kilometres per hour. The surprise downpour was a result of a depression formed over Jharkhand.
"Two days ago a deep depression was formed over Jharkhand which led to a good rain in Bihar and Jharkhand. Now a low depression is being formed in Bay of Bengal. Monsoon is active in Bihar and we expect good rain in next two days in Bihar," said Dr SI Laskar, a meteorologist.
Most of the low-lying areas here, including those in Kankarbagh, Exhibition Road, Sri Krishnanagar and Kadamkuaon were inundated with water for long. (ANI)
