BENGALURU: Rains continued to lash several parts of Bengaluru on Sunday too. Yelahanka and surrounding areas received 60 mm of rain, while Shivakote received 72 mm, according to the Karnataka State Natural Disaster Monitoring Centre (KSNMDC).
SkyMet Weather stated that the HAL Observatory recorded 45 mm of rain, followed by Bengaluru city 58 mm. “The weather activity is mainly due to the presence of an easterly trough extending from Comorin region to Rayalaseema across interior Tamil Nadu and south-interior Karnataka,” SkyMet report stated.
Though rains brought respite from heat, many areas complained of lack of power supply. “Looks like BESCOM has placed cloud sensors in the city. Power interruptions occur as soon as clouds start mounting in the sky. We are living in technology capital of India, you know,” a tweet read. At the same time, another person tweeted, “Pouring rain, adrak chai, poha and midi uppinkai time it is in #Bengaluru!”
