Thus, waterlogging in low-lying areas and closure of underpasses are expected mainly in urban areas of the above region. Visibility may also reduce due to heavy rainfall while disruption of traffic in major cities would be seen due to water-logging on roads.

There are possibilities of damage to the vulnerable structures. Therefore, one must check for traffic congestion on their route before leaving for their destination.
