Many parts of Hyderabad on Sunday afternoon received heavy rainfall which resulted in traffic snarls at Tolichowki, Banjara Hills, Moulali, Madhapur among others. The roads at many places and several low lying areas witnessed water logging.

According to the Telangana State Development Planning Society, Bandlaguda recorded the highest rainfall of 42.3 mm till 7 pm, followed by Charminar (39.8 mm), Sardar Mahal (37.5 mm), RC Puram (36.3 mm) and Asif Nagar (34.8 mm). As if the moderate to heavy rainfall in the city was not enough on Sunday, India Meteorological Department’s weather warning predicted heavy rain and thunderstorm accompanied by lightning at isolated places over Telangana in the next two days.

Heavy rains yesterday resulted in inundation in several low lying areas of the old city. Many streets in Amannagar, Tallabkatta, Bilal Nagar, Ghouse Nagar, Uppuguda and Lalithabagh in the old city were flooded with rain water.

Residents were took by surprise when the heavy downpour lashed the areas, which resulted in water entering their houses in several low lying areas especially those in close proximity to the big water discharge channels.

Motorists had to wade through knee deep water at Mahabub Chowk, Khilwat, Misrigunj, Bilal Nagar, Tallabkatta, Chacha Garage and Panjesha. The rains also forced the residents to postpone their outing plans on Sunday.

Teams of the GHMC were seen clearing the heavy water logging reported at Engine Bowli, Jahanuma Almas café junction, Kishanbagh cross roads, Tadban, Syed Ali Chabutra and Khilwat Road.
Met Department predicts light to moderate rain and thundershowers would continue in many parts of Telangana for another two to three days. Places like Hyderabad, Khammam, Hanamkonda, Nizamabad, and Medak would observe light to moderate rain and thundershower for the next 48 to 72 hours,” the agency added.
