According to the IMD’s forecast, all six zones in Hyderabad – Charminar, Khairatabad, Kukatpally, LB Nagar, Secunderabad, and Serilingampally – will experience moderate to heavy rainfall with occasional intense spells throughout the day.

The Telangana State Development Planning Society (TSDPS) reported that from 8:30 am on July 26 to 6 am today, all areas of Hyderabad received significant rainfall. The highest rainfall was recorded in Bandlaguda with 54.8 mm, followed by Golconda with 51.3 mm and Shaikpet with 47.5 mm.

Unfortunately, the heavy rainfall has caused waterlogging issues, especially in low-lying regions, leading to massive traffic problems in various parts of the city.

In response to the continuous rainfall, authorities lifted two floodgates of Himayat Sagar at 4 pm yesterday and two floodgates of Osman Sagar at 2:30 pm today, releasing water into the Musi River.

The TSDPS report indicates that moderate to heavy rainfall is expected to continue until July 28. Residents are advised to take necessary precautions and plan their travel carefully based on the forecasts from IMD Hyderabad and TSDPS. Stay safe and be prepared for the ongoing weather conditions.
