Heavy rains continued to lash Karnataka Sunday as the monsoon remained vigorous, disrupting normal life, causing traffic jams on state and national highways and flooding low-lying areas across the state, an official said.
Traffic jams have, ironically, come to spell a day of normalcy in the Kashmir Valley. They reflect the hustle-bustle of a people out to finish sundry tasks before the sun goes down, foretelling another separatist shutdown.
Heavy rains took the charm out of
the Sunday for Delhiites today as traffic went haywire on
waterlogged roads, vehicles developed technical problems while
on move and no scope was left for an evening outing.
Vehicular movement came to a
virtual halt as motorists were stuck in serpentine jams at almost all arterial roads across the capital tonight
following heavy rains that led to waterlogging and breakdown
in traffic signals.
