A huge tree uprooted and fell on a car killing three people including a woman. Traffic was thrown out of gear as uprooted trees blocked the road. Many important roads were water logged compelling motorists to wade through it.

Areas such as Banashankari, Richmond Road, Gali Anjaneya Temple, Vijayanagar, Majestic, Shanthinagar, BTM Layout, Madivala and Sarjapura Road were badly affected due to the torrential rains. Many vehicles in the basements of low-lying areas were almost submerged.

Sajjanraj Mehta, a resident of Hanumanthanagar told PTI that a huge tree fell on the main gate of his house damaging the gate as well as an electric pole.

The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike was flooded with complaints about uprooting of trees, floods and power disruption.

The meteorology department recorded 62.4 mm rain by 8.30 pm. Meteorology officials said cyclonic circulation above the Bay of Bengal adjoining Andhra Pradesh and a trough from Chhattisgarh to Tamil Nadu caused heavy rains. There will be heavy rains in the next 48 hours, they said.
