Heavy rain that lashed the city for about half an hour resulted in waterlogging in Phase 3B1 here this afternoon. There was knee-deep water on most of the roads here, leading to problems for residents.

Jaspreet Singh Gill, two-time councillor from Ward No. 6, said there was waterlogging in the area after the rain, which started around 2.30 pm. He said rainwater had entered more than 50 houses in an area. It not only damaged furniture, but also electronic items in houses.

Jaspreet Singh Gill said sewer water started overflowing from toilets, leading to foul smell in houses. He immediately called fire brigade officials. Two fire tenders, which were pressed into service, took half an hour to drain out the accumulated water. Gill said he got the road gullies cleared this year too, but heavy rain resulting in waterlogging in the area.
