A pavement side tree collapsed this Wednesday morning on West Circular Road in Mandaveli, reports C R Balaji ( who shared this photo)
Obviously, its root system was weakened and the steady rains could be a reason for the collapse.
Elsewhere, where new drains are under construction, turned into water carriers after rain on consecutive days. Example, the Kasturi Ranga Road stretch in Alwarpet.
Also, places where Metro rail prelim work is on, the excavation sites have become slushy.
