Bengaluru: The heavy downpour in Devanahalli flooded not just the streets, but also turned the Kempegowda International Airport into a mini-river.

Even the road to the airport was flooded to such an extent that cars were unable to ply on the road. The airport police and the teams attached to the Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL) had a tough time diverting the vehicles and making alternative arrangements.

Passengers, fearing they would miss their flight, were seen taking tractor to the airport.

The arrival and departure areas were also flooded after the rainfall.

Till 10 pm, 11 departing flights were delayed due to the adverse weather conditions. Many incoming flights were directed to go around. However, the tarmac was not flooded and there were no issues on the landing side, informed sources.

People are sharing videos of the flooded airport on social media, which has gone viral.

The downpour is likely to continue for the next few days, as the India Meteorological Department (IMD) has put the city on yellow alert.

“Heavy rainfall likely to occur over Belagavi, Bagalkot, Vijayapura, Koppal, Raichur and Gadag districts of North Interior Karnataka and Chikkamagaluru, Shivamogga, Kodagu, Kolar, Bengaluru Rural, Bengaluru Urban, Tumakuru, Chikkaballapura and Ramanagara districts of South Interior Karnataka,” the IMD forecast stated.
