August, one of the peak months for monsoon, announced its arrival on the right note, with what could be described as one of the most intense rainfalls of the season so far.

The drizzle and occasional spells that kept recurring through the week culminated in heavy rains that lashed the city throughout the day on Saturday.

The weekend began on a cloudy note and as the day progressed, dark clouds gathered and different parts of the city received heavy rain. In some parts, it rained nonstop for almost two hours and apart from bringing the traffic to a complete halt, left many areas stranded with water-logged roads.

With the Southwest Monsoon continuing to be active over the State, the rains were almost widespread with even the suburbs receiving an intense lashing. Across the city, the sight of two-wheelers and pedestrians seeking shelter from the rain under flyovers, bridges and in front of shops and buildings, turned out to be common.

Till 5 pm on Saturday, KPHB recorded the highest rainfall of 86.5 mm, followed by Balaji Nagar (83.5 mm), Hafeezpet (80.3 mm) and Bandlaguda (80 mm) according to the Telangana State Development Planning Society (TSDPS). Apart from waterlogging, incidents of drainage overflowing were reported in some low lying areas such as parts including Balaji Nagar.
