Heavy rains lash Telangana and Andhra Pradesh; flood-like situation in Hyderabad

Incessant and heavy rains are leading to a flood-like situation in Hyderabad. On Friday, Telangana declared a holiday for all educational institutions in Hyderabad and Ranga Reddy districts for two days due to the heavy rains. On Thursday, Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao instructed the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation to take the help of Army and NDRF for the relief measures if needed, as rains lashed the city for two consecutive days. Normal life in some low-lying areas of Hyderabad was disrupted due to the water-logging, and traffic was hit badly due to the downpour. The Met department has said “heavy to very” rains are likely in isolated places during the next four days in the state. Municipal Administration Minister KT Rama Rao and some senior officials visited Allamthota Baavi and Mayur Marg in Begumpet which are inundated due to sudden overflowing of Begumpet nala. Rao also inspected relief camps set up by the Government. A GHMC official said there was a rainfall of 20 mm in eight areas in just one hour between 1 pm and 2 pm today. Water entered into some buildings in Nizampet and Bachupalli on the outskirts of the city.
