Bengaluru airport water-logged with rains; people riding tractor to catch flight

Experts says that more rainfall is expected over the next two weeks and the city may break all the previous records

The Karnataka's capital is headed for the wettest October in over the last two decades.

As per the Karnataka State Natural Disaster Monitoring Centre (KSNDMC), Bengaluru Urban district recorded 78mm rain as against the normal 61mm that is an excess of 28 percent, from 1 October till 9 October.

Experts says that more rainfall is expected over the next two weeks and the city may break all the previous records.

The heavy rainfall has not only brought the city to a halt but also has exposed the lack of preparations and planning of the civic agencies once again.

The roadway to the Kempegowda International Airport, Bengaluru  was flooded with the rainwater which made it difficult for the passengers to reach the airport.

Passengers shared several video clips on Twitter, where it can be seen that they are forced to take a ride on tractor to airport.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted isolated heavy rains across the coastal and southern interior Karnataka until 15 October.
