Heavy rains, gusty winds uproot trees in city

Electric poles, transformers, vehicles damaged

Mysore/Mysuru: The heavy rains, accompanied by thunder, lightning and gusty winds, that lashed the city last night, has resulted in uprooting of trees in many localities and minor damages to a few houses too. Fortunately, no casualties were reported from any part of the city.

Most parts of the city plunged into darkness for well over five hours as several electric poles too got damaged  and transformers got burst. The CESC authorities immediately cut-off power supplies in many localities as a precautionary measure and electricity was restored only after well-past midnight following repairs.

More than 20 roadside trees were uprooted, mainly in localities such as Bannimantap, Muneshwaranagar, N.R. Mohalla, Gandhinagar, Kyathamaranahalli,Gourishankarnagar, Kuvempunagar, Niveditanagar, T.K. Layout, Kurubarahalli Circle and J.P. Nagar.

MCC Abhaya team swung into action by removing the trees or branches that had fallen on to the roads, blocking traffic.

A tree fell upon a parked car in Gandhinagar 5th Cross, resulting in damages to the car and other vehicles parked closeby, while at least five electric poles were damaged in Kesare as tree trunks fell upon them.

A huge  branch of a tree that fell on Udayaravi Road in Kuvempunagar resulted in disruption of traffic on the busy road. MCC’s Abhaya team rushed to the spot and cleared the tree branch to restore vehicular movement.

Another tree was uprooted at Government School in Naganahalli on the outskirts of the city. Bannimantap Fire Brigade personnel led by Fire Officer Shivaswamy rushed to the spot and cleared the tree.

    It appears that as usual trees and electric poles with live wires are down! Narendra Modi’s Tech India looking very nice!
    Anyway, start buying boats to traverse through roads, as monsoon rains flood your roads and sewage joins it too!

  2. boregowda says:

    Next you will blame Narendra Modi’s Tech India for your constipation / loose motion.

  3. koppal boregowda says:

    I get that you have a serious constipation issue. That makes your brain cloudy and dim.

    Hey boregowda
    You should read and understand a post before replying to it.
    These monsoon rains cause havoc in all parts of India. Yet , the Centre has not done anything about it. It is proper to comment on the initiatives of Tech India that Modi emphasises without paying sufficient attention at the national level these disasters which kill people, which surely can be minimised through a number of preventive measures, not leaving them to the local levels.
    Modi’s Tech India, did not ensure sufficient Oxygen supplies last year, many thousands of Indian patients died not getting oxygen when they had Covid infection. Modi simply disappeared sitting in a cave, growing a long beard. That should have been a national initiative.
    Hence, next time, read properly, if you cannot, do not post nonsensical replies.
