Though the season's rain brought respite to the city on Tuesday from the simmering heat after a gap of almost two weeks, it clogged underpasses and roads in the low-lying areas in Ahmedabad.

The city had earlier received its first spell of rain in the second week of June.

Within an hour of the downpour accompanied by heavy lighting and thunder, many roads in the western part of the city were knee-deep in water.

People were seen stranded on the roads along with their two-wheelers.

Areas like Ambawadi, Ellisbridge underpass, Manekbag, Panjrapoll were some of the effected area.

Earlier, heavy rains were reported from Rajkot,Surat, Vasad, Amreli and Bhavnagar district.
