In InE, you'll find a lot of headlines/sentences using 'waterlogging'. Say--
- Waterlogging at the Central Railway Station caused traffic jam in the peak hours
Now, as I refer various dictionaries online, this seems to be an incorrect use. Because 'waterlog' is a verb
waterlog - to fill with water....
In the context of heavy rain, the 'adjective'
waterlogged seems to be more appropriate as in...
- Waterlogged Central Railway Station caused a traffic jam in the peak hours
Now, 'waterlogging' as a gerund the way Indian media uses for a rain-filled area seems to be wrong. Because, waterlogging means something different. It is more agricultural.
So, which one is proper? 1 or 2?
I'm interested what native speakers say when they want to refer to 'waterlogging' like this --
Note: 'waterlogging' search on Google images brings in actual result of fields and crops. So, this supports my question that 'waterlogging' referring to water-filled roads in rain is improper.
