By 21st August 2017 0 Comments

Heavy rainfall on Monday morning brought the tricity (Chandigarh, Mohali, Panchkula) to a stand still as poor drainage system gave way to roads being flooded with water. The rainfall left the cars of commuters stuck in middle of the roads forcing them to leave their cars stranded.The meteorological department said a total of 112 mm rainfall was recorded from 8.30am to 11:30 am on Monday. The officials said that the weather will stay like this for a couple of days more.

Vehicles could be seen submerged in water at most places in the tricity. At places the vehicles broke down, causing further traffic snarls. People could be seen wading in knee-deep water and pushing the vehicles to a side. Long queues of vehicles could be seen at most lightpoints and roundabouts. Traffic crawled on Madhya Marg, railway light point, transport lights, Housing Board light point and other areas.
