Rains have been lashing the three erstwhile districts of Nalgonda, Khammam and Adilabad from Wednesday evening, disrupting normal life and damaging crops.

Nalgonda, which remained relatively dry this monsoon, received a record 20 cm rainfall in just six hours on Wednesday evening. All 31 mandals in the district received heavy rain, while 12 in Yadadri-Bhongir district and 20 in Suryapet witnessed moderate to heavy rain on Tuesday night. Crop damage was reported from Chandur, Damaracharla, Kattangur and Thirumalgiri (Sagar) mandals in the district, affecting over 500 farmers.

Village tanks and reservoirs were overflowing, snapping road connectivity to certain areas of the State. In erstwhile Khammam district, besides the district headquarters, mandals such as Yellandu and Tekulapalli in Kothagudem; Karepally, Kamepally, Wyra and Konijerla recorded heavy rain. Officials at Kinnerasani and Taliperu projects released excess water downstream. Standing crops, including green gram and cotton, were damaged. Parts in erstwhile Adilabad district also registered moderate to light rains on Tuesday night. 

Meanwhile, the southwest monsoon returned to Hyderabad with a few spells of heavy rains from Tuesday midnight. What began as light showers turned into a downpour resulting in waterlogging in parts of the city.
