Heavy rainfall on Sunday led to water logging at several places in Greater Hyderabad limits and taking heavy toll on commuters with hours-long traffic jams. At some places, there were traffic congestions unusual for a regular Sunday. The stretch from Jubilee Hills, Banjara Hills to Hitec-City and Madhapur was worst-affected as heavy water logging was seen at Shilparamam. Traffic and GHMC personnel were seen diverting the traffic at many places.

They used JCBs and motor pumps to flush out the flooded water from water logging points. Cyberabad Police Commissioner V C Sajjanar personally reviewed the situation with GHMC officials and engineers. In each zone under the Cyberabad Commissionerate, 10 to 12 teams along with the disaster management personnel were working to clear the water logging points.

But the heavy rainfall for more than one hour in the city once again on Sunday afternoon hours created problems for city commuters.

In Kukatpally, Mallapur and other areas, gusty winds accompanied by heavy rains collapsed a few hoardings. The western parts of the city, officials said, logged in more rainfall — Jubilee Hills received the highest of 66.30 mm, followed by Madhapur (65.5 mm) and Moosapet (57.5 mm).

Waterlogging was seen in areas like Nampally, Abids, Koti, Malakpet, Dilsukhnagar, L B Nagar, Uppal, Habsiguda, Amberpet, Musheerabad, Secunderabad, Khairatabad, Panjagutta, SR Nagar, Yousufguda, Kukatpally, Banjara Hills, Jubilee Hills, Kondapur, Gachibowli, Tolichowki, Mehdipatnam, etc. Since the drainages were blocked the flooded water came on to the roads affecting the smooth flow of traffic. 

Many commuters faced problems since their vehicles stopped in the rain as water entered into the silencers.
