BENGALURU: After heavy rains hit the city, LB Shastri Nagar’s apartments, next to the old airport road, are cut off from water and electricity supplies. Some of the 132 families in the Fern Saroj Apartments have left their homes and moved into hotels, while a few have sought refuge with relatives or friends. The basement has been under 5 feet of water since Sunday evening. The fallout from the floods is that many children from nearby apartments have not been able to attend school as buses have not been able to enter.

Neighboring RR castles hired a fire truck for Rs 10,000 and removed water from their basement on Monday. Padmaja Ramamurthy and her family, who left Fern Saroj in a car, said: “We have two little twins. They cannot do without basic amenities. We are heading to a hotel,” she said. The chairman of the Fern Saroj Apartment Owners Association, V Prabhakar, told TNIE:
