Bengaluru rains: People take to fishing on roads as flooded streets jam traffic

Bengaluru has been battling floods, traffic jams, and disruption of normal life after the incessant rains following the downpour on Thursday night and Friday morning.

According to The Newsminute, apart from the areas around the Bellandur lake, Hosur Main Road, NICE road junction below Electronic City flyover, Old Madras Raod, Hulimavu, Arekere area near Bannerhatta road, Bommanahalli-Silkboard and Bellandur are flooded.

Over the past two days, the Bellandur lake in the southeastern part of the city has not only been overflowing but has started frothing.

According to The Times of India, the lake which has flooded the road leading to Yemalur Prestige Tech Park, has previously been in the news for its foaming and spewing froth all over the place.

"When the lake started frothing, they had created a slope at the lake's exit, to ensure that the foam did not leak. The water has now entered some of the gated houses, which are not at a higher elevation.The neighbouring Kariyammana Agrahara has also been flooded," a Yemalur resident was quoted as saying.

Even as the local cops are trying to clear the clogged water drains, amusing as it may sound, Bangaloreans are catching fish in the overflowing lake water at 29th Main, BTM. Karnataka officer Abhishek Goyal tweeted photos.
