The control room of the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) received 27 complaints, most of which were from Mahadevapura and South Zone pertaining to waterlogging. Traffic snarls due to waterlogging were reported in areas like Ulsoor, JC Road, Avenue Road, Satellite Bus Stand and Koramangala. BBMP personnel were deployed to drain the water out.
