Heavy Rains Wreak Havoc On Hyderabad

After being boiled down over the past couple of months in scorching hot summer, Hyderabad has suddenly witnessed heavy rainfall with thunderstorms and lightening. This evening, a heavy downpour with stormy winds wreaked havoc on the capital city by waterlogging the roads.

Huge trees and hoardings were uprooted and fell on a few city roads, causing damage to several cars and two-wheelers and disrupting traffic. With thick, dark clouds blanketing the city's sky, the entire city has become dark by 5 pm itself.

The magnitude of the rainfall is so severe that a pipeline near the Banjara Hills water tank broke completely and several vehicles were washed away in the water, causing a huge traffic jam. Most areas in the city were cut off power supply, pushing the city dwellers into darkness. Various municipal authorities are working relentlessly to restore normalcy.
