Heavy rains disrupt normal life in Hyderabad

Heavy rainfall hit normal life due to waterlogging, snarled traffic and power failure in Hyderabad. The Indian Meteorological Department, Hyderabad officials attributed the sudden downpour to the depression caused in the Bay of Bengal. Ameerpet, Koti, Begum Bazar, SR Nagar, Sanath Nagar, Madhapur, Gachibowli, Lingampally, Kukkatpally, and Rai Durgam received heavy rainfall yesterday.

With the low-lying areas filled with water all over and traffic coming to standstill in many places, people are having a tough time to reach to offices. The GHMC commissioner ordered the officials to be ready for any help and requested the citizens of Hyderabad to dial 100 in case of any emergency.
