HUBBALLI, JANUARY 8: Widespread unseasonal rain caused misery to the residents of Hubballi-Dharwad on Friday evening.
It rained incessantly for nearly two hours, flooding streets and inundating low-lying areas. The waterlogging problem was particularly acute on the BRTS road outside President Hotel opposite the Unkal Lake as motorists struggled to navigate the road as they could hardly see it.
Water entered the houses in low-lying areas, including Railway ground on Club Road. In Ganesh Nagar near Anand Nagar, drains overflowed and the sewage water entered homes.
Rainwater also entered several shops in many parts of the city.
