Bhopal: Several parts of Madhya Pradesh's capital city Bhopal were left waterlogged on Saturday following heavy rainfall.

Intense showers brought Bhopal to a standstill, resulting in a traffic jam at several junctions and roads across the city. People had to wade through the waterlogged areas while traffic moved slowly owing to jam in different parts of the city.

The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted rain and thundershowers at isolated places over Madhya Pradesh for the next few days.

"Fairly widespread to widespread rainfall with isolated heavy falls from October 10 to October 12, likely over parts of east and northeast India.
