Floods Wreak Havoc Again
Two people were washed away in the heavy rains that hit Bangalore Tuesday.
Bangalore registered a record rainfall of 52.5 cm up to 2 pm Tuesday for October, breaking a 50-year-old high of 52.2 cm as several layouts, including posh ones, in southern parts of the city where several IT firms are located were marooned and civic authorities were facing an uphill task to evacuate the affected persons to safer places.
With railway tracks on the Bangalore-Jolarpet section being submerged at some places, Southern Railways cancelled the Chennai-Mysore Cauvery Express and diverted the Bangalore Mail for the day via Dharmapuri and Salem.
