Heavy rains have left roads in Bengaluru flooded. While cars and two-wheelers are unable to move, even buses were seen moving on the roads, half submerged in water. Low-lying areas were completely submerged in the floods. The rain, accompanied by strong winds, sent huge trees crashing to the ground. The local authorities have urged people in low-lying areas to vacate and go to safer places. Arrangements that were made for Independence Day celebrations in the city were washed out due to the sudden heavy downpour.
