As heavy rains and waterlogging continue to lash several parts of India, similar stories are coming in from Bengaluru. Bengaluru braces itself for already bad traffic becoming far worse, with waterlogged roads, flooded houses, and even sewage overflows. But in the city people were seen trying to catch fish with fishing on the flooded roads, using bed sheets, blankets and fishing nets.

Almost 15 hours of constant rain caused many of the city’s lakes to overflow on the main roads. As the water from these overflowing lakes flooded the roads, a radio station reported that fishermen have started trying to catch live fish that were swept along with lake water.

Twitter user posted a picture:

In four days, Bengaluru has recorded over 135 mm of rainfall, which happens to be about 30 mm more than its monthly rainfall in July. And the weather department has forecast more rain.
