The waterlogged roads made it near impossible for the passengers to reach the airport. As the roads were lined with cars stuck due to heavy water logging a tractor offered to ferry passengers. Many people took the opportunity to use the tractor as transport to the airport rather than miss their flight.

Many airport goers shared the clips on Twitter, as they were forced to sit on a tractor ride to ferry a ride to the airport to catch their flights.

Meanwhile, one person was killed due to a short circuit in a flooded home at the Konappana Agrahara limits of Bengaluru city.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted more rains, thunderstorm and lighting for the city today. Heavy rains will continue over Coastal and South Interior Karnataka till 15 October, the weather department warned.
