Hyderabad City lashed by Torrential rains again on Saturday just days after heavy rainfall caused severe damage in Telangana's capital city. The heavy rainfall caused water logging in several areas of Hyderabad city.

Streets submerged in flood water, vehicles being swept away in strong currents were among the several frightening scenes witnessed in Hyderabad as heavy overnight rain devastated parts of the city and adjoining areas.


According to reports, water has been flowing at Babanagar B-Block on Sunday Morning after the collapse of a portion of Balapur lake. The water coming out from the lake has submerged several residential areas, including Hafiz Baba Nagar, Omer Colony, Nabeel Colony and other adjoining areas.

Some areas received more than 150 mm through the day, triggering traffic jams and water-logging.

The Disaster Response Force (DRF) personnel of the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) were continuously working on the field clearing water stagnations and inundations and all possible measures were being initiated in view of the rainfall, Vishwajit Kampati Director, Vigilance and Disaster Management of GHMC, said in a tweet.

Telangana state is the worst hit area but the flooding has also affected neighbouring Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka.

Telangana minister KT Rama Rao on Saturday said that flood-hit families will be identified and given ration kits at their doorstep.
