Heavy rainfall inundate roads in western India
Torrential rain flooded roads making travel a difficult task in western India’s Maharashtra.
The incident took place in Pune on April 16.
Visuals showed roads flooded with muddy rain water and vehicles partially submerged in it while commuting.
According to reports, The initial rainfall of 2024 in Pune and its nearby regions brought a mix of relief and difficulties for locals. Predicted by the India Meteorological Department, the much-awaited rain began around 4 pm, bringing an end to a scorching heatwave with temperatures surpassing 40 degrees Celsius.
However, the downpour also triggered notable disruptions across both the city and Pimpri-Chinchwad. Instances of severe waterlogging in critical zones like Kalwad, Dhanori, and Wagholi worsened existing traffic congestion issues, leading to frustrating gridlock for commuters navigating through the rain-soaked streets.
Alongside traffic challenges, power cuts compounded residents’ troubles, especially in Wagholi, where electricity had been out for more than seven hours. Despite some parts of Pune regaining power, areas like Ubale Nagar remained in the dark. Officials attributed the power outages to fallen trees and debris damaging power lines due to the heavy rainfall.
