Downpour slows down Lucknow
Incessant rain caused water-logging in many areas, badly affecting traffic movement on Thursday.
Vehicles moved at snail’s pace in Hazratganj, Lalbagh, Hussainganj, Indira Nagar and other areas. Commuters had a tough time moving through Loreto Convent crossing, Sadar, Vikramaditya Marg and KKC overbridge due to heavy water-logging.
Water entered many houses in Shakti Nagar and adjoining areas and damaged household items.
LMC control room received around 12 calls related to water-logging from different areas. The residents sought installation of pump sets to drain out water. Additional municipal commissioner Amit Kumar said all the complaints were addressed by the civic body.
