Bhubaneswar: Several low-lying areas in Odisha’s capital were waterlogged after heavy rain lashed the city on Monday afternoon, affecting traffic movement.

Bhubaneswar recorded 46.8 mm of rainfall from 8:30 am to 2:30 pm on Monday, according to the India Meteorological Department (IMD)’s regional centre here.

The waterlogging problem was worsened by poor drainage systems, incomplete desilting work and dugged-up roads, adding to the woes of commuters.
