Heavy Overnight Rain In Hyd Days After Deadly Downpour

Heavy overnight rain left several parts of Hyderabad flooded. The heavy rain caused the Hyderabad's Balanagar Lake breach its boundaries last night, causing huge flash floods in nearby areas.

The heavy rain comes days after deadly downpour left at least 50 people dead and caused damage worth thousands of crores in Telangana.

Frightening visuals showed vehicles being swept away as streets got submerged in water, and massive downpour caused huge damage in the state capital and nearby areas. 

"Due to the rains old Kurnool road towards airport from pvnr expressway is having waterflow over road. All public going towards airport/Bangalore  or coming from airport/Bangalore to city are advised to use outer ring road," Prakash Reddy, DCP Shamshabad, tweeted.

Some areas in the city received more than 150 mm rain through the day, just a little short of the 190 mm reported on Tuesday.

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.

The weather office in Hyderabad said light to moderate rain or thundershowers are very likely to occur in some parts of the city on Sunday; while one or two places may see intense spells.
