UNDER THE WEATHER: Vehicles lie submerged in accumulated rain water in the basement of an apartment building in Bangalore on Wednesday. Over the previous two days, the city was battered by very heavy rain. It received 12.8cm rain in five hours late on Monday night - the heaviest in a day in August in 127 years. The worst hit were south and east Bangalore - Koramangala, HSR Layout, Ejipura, Jayanagar, JP Nagar, BTM Layout, Bannerghatta Road and pockets of Indiranagar - where power lines snapped, trees were uprooted and streets were flooded. But by Wednesday evening, the city was limping to normality after a let-up in the downpour. (PTI)
