Destruction

Ah well. The rains have caused some serious damage in and around Jayanagar 4T block and JP nagar. Tons of fallen trees, power lines and cable tv lines. No power at home for the last 16 hours or so. I am walking around, taking snaps and Airtel's GPRS seems to be working today. Restoration of power may take atleast a couple of days.

Update: After 16.5 hours, power was restored. Phew. The fallen trees clearance thingy is still going on in the area, with the help of the Fire Dept.

I saw the photos in todays papers. Man it really saddens me when trees come down, either by man or by nature. You know last month, some Bangloreans took some much time and energy to protect the trees from being felled by the BCC, and succeeded. Now three rains and three hundred trees have fallen.

However 300 light poles falling I feel is negligence! (I think) Here Mangalore gets the most of urban rain in India complete with stiff winds and all, but light poles don't fall down in the hundreds.

Trees falling? Yikes :-O
Glad the powers back :-)
We had a power cut too when there was a power station explosion. Yeah, a power cut in Russia is like uber rare :-O Eve the metro just stopped working with all the people inside too! :-O Imagine being on the escalator and suddenly the lights go out? *scream*
