However, last night’s rains were not as heavy as the city has witnessed the day before. Wherein, people of Hyderabad awakened with flooded streets and the views of vehicles floating in the flooding rain waters was a scene to watch for.

Last night’s record says that the city was flooded with rainfall ranging from 106 mm to 164 mm that too in a span of just two hours. Roads have transformed into rivers and water levels in the Hussainsagar and other lakes increased rapidly due to heavy rainfall.

A day before, few areas of the city including Qutbullapur received whopping rainfall of 164.25 mm, followed by Malkajgiri and Madhapur at 90.75 mm and 74.25 mm, respectively.

As per the weatherman, rains started pouring over parts of state capital at around 10 pm on Tuesday and picked up pace during midnight. Since then rains in varied intensity have been making their appearance over Hyderabad and other districts of Telangana.

In fact, these incessant showers forced the National Disaster Response Force to step in as well against any rescue that might be required. Most of the government and private schools were also shut due to incessant showers.

As per Skymet Weather, the reason for these torrential downpour over Telangana including Hyderabad can be attributed to a Low pressure area that persists over coastal Andhra Pradesh and adjoining areas.

Moreover, because of this weather system, moderate to heavy showers along with few very heavy rains are expected to continue in many parts of Telangana including Hyderabad. Other regions of the state are also likely to witness fairly widespread heavy to very heavy showers for another 48 hours.

Furthermore, this weather system is likely to move towards Telangana and will intensify into a well-marked low-pressure area which will further increase the rain intensity.
