The BBMP that is faced with the herculean task of containing COVID-19, met yesterday along with other authorities to prepare for monsoon-related emergencies.
As flooding and trees uprooting is usual during the monsoon, the team in advance identified 200 flood prone locations. To clear dead and uprooted trees and branches, the BBMP roped in 500 Civil Defence personnel, who have cleared 468 trees and branches and transported them to Palace Grounds in the last five days.
