Torrential Hyderabad rains wreak havoc, army comes to the rescueHyderabad rains have been wreaking havoc over the residents and these torrential showers have refused to take a backseat. The city of Nizams has been receiving heavy Monsoon showers for the past three days. So much so that flood waters have inundated many parts of the city.

Taking into account the current weather conditions, the government has declared that schools will remain closed on both Friday as well as Saturday under the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation.

Last night very heavy rains were recorded in the city of Hyderabad making the conditions worse. The IT companies have also been asked to give a work from home option to its employees for their convenience.

During the last 24 hours from 8:30 am on Thursday, Hyderabad has recorded a whopping 73 mm of rain. Heavy rains have been recorded over several areas of Hyderabad including Quthbullapur, Charminar, and Malkajgiri as well.

These Monsoon showers can be attributed to the well-marked low pressure which is currently over Andhra Pradesh and its adjoining areas. Also, a trough in the lower levels is running from Northwest India up to the centre of the well-marked low pressure area across Vidarbha and Telangana.

The government has decided to seek the Indian Army’s help for rescue work in several areas including Begumpet, Nizampet and Alwal. Here, due to overflowing water bodies, several residential areas have been inundated with flood waters.

The National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) has also been asked to provide its assistance in undertaking rescue and relief operations. During the next 24 hours, heavy Hyderabad rains are expected to continue which may worsen the situation.
