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 like 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.
