Bhubaneswar: People in the twin cities of Bhubaneswar and Cuttack had a harrowing time negotiating the roads after a heavy downpour caused waterlogging in many low lying areas here on Thursday.
Due to incessant heavy rains, artificial lakes were created in the by-lanes and roads at several places in both the urban centres.
The flooded rain water halted vehicular movement on service and approach roads in the capital city. Some areas of Palasuni, GGP Colony, Nayapalli also got inundated with rain water entering houses of the residents. People had a tough time to reach their houses due to stagnant rain water on approach roads.
Similar was the case in Cuttack with many parts of the city flooded due to waterlogging. Several low-lying localities remained waterlogged for hours since the city received a spell of heavy rainfall yesterday. Vehicular movement was also affected here.
