Rain effect: Sewage water enters houses

May 27, 2020

Mysore/Mysuru: Heavy rains accompanied with gusty winds continued to lash city yesterday too.

The rain, accompanied by thunder, lightning and strong wind, which began at about 7.30 pm, uprooted a tree at Vidyaranyapuram and brought down branches on Chamaraja Double Road, near Kurimandi in Kesare and other places across the city.

The Mysuru City Corporation’s (MCC) Abhaya team, which swung into action, cleared the tree and branches that had fallen across various roads and made way for smooth flow of traffic.  

Clogged drains

The rains clogged many drains and made manholes to overflow, which also resulted in sewage water entering houses in low lying areas especially at Bhyraweshwarnagar on Hebbal Main Road and Lokanayaknagar. It was a tough time for a few residents of these areas as they had to spend the entire night removing sewage water.

26 mm rainfall 

According to the statistics from the Organic Farming and Research Centre at Naganahalli, Mysuru hobli including city received 26 mm rainfall, Yelwal hobli 33 mm, Jayapura hobli 16 mm and Varuna hobli received 8 mm rainfall yesterday. Mysuru district recorded 9.4 mm rainfall yesterday.
