Heavy rainfall lashes Indore city.

Heavy rain strikes indore

Indore is witnessing heavy rainfall, with many areas getting waterlogged. Heavy, incessant rain has paralyzed the city where traffic congestion and riddled roads are leading to a suspension of services in some parts of the city.
Pictures from Singapore Township, Dewas Naka, Navlakha, Labrayabheru, Annapurna road, and pipliyahana square shows that these areas are badly immersed in water, breaching the danger level. Vehicular traffic crawls on main roads including Ring Road, BRTS, Geeta Bhawan, Bhanwarkua, Guitar square, Palasia and Rajwada corridors where the traffic was observed moving on a slow pace due to waterlogging.
Taking note of the situation, Indore Municipal Corporation (IMC) is keeping a watch in their respective areas to prevent waterlogging and traffic congestion. The civic body officials, claims that there was no major waterlogging in and around the city.
However, due to incessant and heavy rains, the water level rose above the railway track level leading to the suspension of services and hampering maintenance of trains at the railway station. Most of the pit lines are found to be submerged in water, making it difficult for railway staff to carry out maintenance.
It is estimated that the city received 76.4mm rainfall in the past 24 hours and the no is ever more likely to rise of heavy to very heavy rainfall in the city. Authorities have forecast heavy showers on Thursday too. Meteorological Department says that the nearby areas of the city-Mhow, Sanwer, Depalpur, Gautampura have received more rainfall than the city.
Indore municipal corporation requests people to be careful while traveling on roads and avoid any mishaps.
