Heavy rains lashed many parts of Hyderabad on Wednesday paralysing normal life and causing traffic gridlocks at several stretches. The downpour led to waterlogging at major thoroughfares across Hyderabad, as general public struggled to wade through the waist-deep water.

The intense spell of showers led to extensive waterlogging at several areas, including Ameerpet, Punjagutta, Raj Bhavan Road, Begumpet, Melkote Park, Himayathnagar, Vaibhav Colony, Nallakunta and Kachiguda, and also in Old City. 

Widespread rainwater inundation was also reported from LB Nagar, Tarnaka, Habsiguda, Koti, Basheerbagh, Abids, Santoshnagar, Dilsukhnagar, Tolichowki and Mehdipatnam.

At Punjagutta, Ameerpet and Tolichowki main roads, massive water inundation swept away a few private vehicles, including cars and two-wheelers that were parked nearby. Throughout Wednesday evening, commuters returning to their homes at all these locations had a tough time dealing with inundated rainwater.

By evening, Gandipet recorded the highest rainfall of 94.3 mm, followed by Abdullapurmet (88.5 mm), Tolichowki (80.8 mm), Mehdipatnam (75.3 mm), Gudimalkapur (67 mm) and Bandlaguda (59.8 mm), according to the Telangana State Development Planning Society (TSDPS).

With Southwest monsoons continuing to remain active, Hyderabad has been receiving incessant rainfall for the last one week. During the last 24 hours, the highest rainfall of 5.5 mm was recorded at Kapra.

Weather forecast by TSDPS said the low-pressure area over Telangana and adjoining south Chhattisgarh has become less marked and under its influence, fairly widespread rainfall, along with a possibility of isolated heavy rain, is expected over the State for the next two days.
