The Metro on Green Line at Mantri Mall Station had to be stopped due to power failure caused by the thunderstorms before services were restored.
The areas affected include JP Nagar, Jayanagar, Lalbagh, Chickpet, Majestic, Malleswaram, Rajajinagar, Yeshwantpur, MG Road, Cubbon Park, Vijayanagar, Rajarajeshwari Nagar, Kengeri, Magadi Road and Mysore Road.
The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued an Orange warning predicting heavy rain in many parts of rural and urban Bengaluru today.
According to the IMD, coastal and southern Karnataka will likely experience heavy to very heavy rainfall accompanied by thunderstorms and lightning due to the southwest monsoon advancing into the Andaman and Nicobar islands.
