The monsoon, which had hitherto remained a reluctant visitor in the city, finally appears to be steadily intensifying with rains lashing Hyderabad over the last couple of days.

On Tuesday, a few areas received three to four centimetres of rain in the evening and as a result, traffic movement was affected across the capital, besides leaving a few streets under sheets of water.

Complaints of waterlogging, trees collapsing and power disruption poured in from different areas to the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) over Dial 100, MyGhmc app and through Emergency Control Room.

A tree collapsed near Telugu Academy at Himayathnagar and another fell at Amberpet. Traffic snarls were reported from Himayathnagar, Narayanguda, Masab Tank and neighbouring areas.

In the IT corridor, the plight of motorists compounded further with waterlogging in many areas. At Madhapur, those heading towards Nectar Garden had to drive through knee-deep water. Due to waterlogging, the Cyberabad Traffic Police appealed to motorists to take alternate routes to reach Neeru’s Junction via Kavuri Hills and the 100 Feet road.

Heavy waterlogging also disrupted traffic flow at DLF Road, Gachibowli. GHMC monsoon emergency teams swung into action in different areas and cleared the water logging points to

ensure free flow of traffic.

At Market Nala, Sitaphalmandi, GHMC officials cut cables of a telecommunication company, which were obstructing the flow of water in the nala.

According to the Telangana State Development Planning Society, till 6 pm, LB Nagar received the highest rainfall of 40.8 mm, followed by Gachibowli (33 mm), Vijayanagar Colony (32.3 mm), Asifnagar (32.3) and Kacheguda (31.8 mm).

India Meteorological Department officials said the weather on Wednesday could be cloudy with one or two spells of rain or thundershowers in the city. 

Hopes of better rains ahead were rekindled with the IMD saying the State was likely to witness heavy rain over isolated places for three days beginning Wednesday. In rest of the State, the IMD said light to moderate rain or some thundershowers were in store till coming Sunday.

The Indian Meteorological Department also said widespread rainfall with isolated heavy falls were also likely over Chhattisgarh over the next five days with widespread rainfall and isolated heavy falls expected for two days from July 21 as well as interior parts of Maharashtra and Karnataka. Rains in these three States can result in increased flows in Pranahita, Godavari and Krishna rivers, respectively.
