Traffic was in total disarray at crucial points. Although office-goers returning home had to face hardships, there was overall relief about the respite the public got from the scorching heat. The weather forecast indicates that the same situation might prevail over the coming three or four days.

Trees have been uprooted near Sanjay Gandhi hospital and in front of the Jayanagar police station.
