Hyderabad city is inundated with heavy rain due to the surface trough. Life in Hyderabad has almost come to a standstill as it has been raining non-stop since Tuesday night. The low-lying areas were inundated and motorists are facing severe problems as heavy rainwater has stopped flowing on roads and junctions. In the suburbs of Hyderabad, the colonies were submerged. As a result, people are having a hard time as the water entered their homes.

With heavy rains lashing across the State resulting in heavy inflows into the irrigation projects including Sri Ram Sagar Project (SRSP) and other water bodies, Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao directed the elected representatives and the government officials to take precautionary measures on war footing as water levels are rising in Godavari River.

He instructed Minister Vemula Prashanth Reddy to remain on alert and take precautionary measures in the wake of heavy rains in Nizamabad district especially Balkonda constituency. The Chief Minister directed Chief Secretary Somesh Kumar to deploy NDRF teams immediately as several parts of Nirmal town was inundated. He asked the Collectors, Superintendents of Police and Revenue as well as Roads and Buildings department officials in the districts along the Godavari River banks, to take precautionary measures to prevent any inconvenience to the people.

The widespread rains are attributed to an active southwest monsoon as well as a cyclonic circulation lying over northwest Bay of Bengal in the middle and upper tropospheric levels. Under its influence, a low-pressure area is very likely to form over Northwest Bay of Bengal during the next 48 hours. It is likely to move west northwestwards along the monsoon trough during the subsequent two or three days, resulting in heavy rains in north Telangana districts as well as moderate rains in the rest of the State.

According to the officials of Telangana State Development Planning Society (TSDPS), Telangana continued to receive moderate and widespread rains since Tuesday night. The highest rainfall of 11 cm, was recorded at Jainoor in Kumuram Bheem Asifabad district over the last 24 hours, followed by 9 cm in Kathlapur and Mallapur of Jagitial district along with Gangadhara of Karimnagar district. Heavy rain occurred at many places in Mulugu district and at a few places in Peddapalli district.
