Waterlogged Streets, Flooded Homes as Heavy Rains Lash Indian City

BHOPAL From flooded houses to waterlogged streets, traffic and daily life was disrupted in the central Indian city of Bhopal on Thursday as continuous monsoon rains lashed the state.

People were struggling to clear the knee-high water inside of their flooded homes, and save their furniture and daily use items such as kitchen utensils, an epa-efe journalist reported.

EPA photos showed a woman lying on a couch, her sandals on a half submerged coffee table, and commuters struggling to wade through waterlogged streets.

The city has been placed on a red alert as the met department predicted heavy rain in south-western Bhopal over the next 24 hours.

According to local media reports, the flooding in Bhopal was caused by the failure of municipal authorities to clear around 800 blocked drains in the city, despite prior warning.

In 2016, major flooding left around a dozen people dead and 20,000 affected in the city.
