Even IMD officially declares the advent of monsoons in Pune, the rain has already wreaked havoc in the city

Streets of Dhanori were flooded on June 4 due to rains

Following the rain on Wednesday, commuters at Vanaz Metro Station were irked when faced with an unexpected leakage issue from the station’s roof

There have been reports of waterlogging, tree falls, and power cuts in the last few days

The drainage line pipe work near Amrut Mitra Mandal on Karve Road recently concluded with the pouring of concrete. However, the concrete flowed into the nullah, creating a large pit last month

The combination of partially cleaned drains, ongoing road construction, metro, and flyover projects contributes to the waterlogging

The parking lots of metro station are also waterlogged
