Mangaluru: This year’s monsoon started with a big bang in the district here, on June 4.
As predicted by the Indian Meteorological Department, the monsoon season started with heavy rains, thunder and lighting.
Until June 3, there was no rain but on June 4, the district witnessed severe rains which started at around 12.45 p.m, disrupting traffic and normal life. Most of the people who did not carry any rain protection gear were caught unaware.
Rain water was seen flowing on the roads as there are no proper rain water drains in the city. Many of the places were filled with water. The compounds of some houses in low level areas were filled with water.
The district administration should take measures to make proper rain water drains before the Monsoon. In Kulshekar, the ward corporator is not ready to visit the place to assess and solve their problems. When the problems were informed to him by a residents, he said to address the problem with the commissioner.
The concerned authorities of the Mangaluru City Corporation should take note of it and take action against such negligent corporators.
