Rain lashes parts of Hyderabad, heavy rainfall warning extended till July 22 | Hyderabad News – Times of India


HYDERABAD: The city received light to moderate rain accompanied with gale on Sunday evening after few areas received about 50mm of rainfall by evening.
According to the Telangana State Development Planning Society, Gansibazar recorded the highest rainfall of 48.8mm followed by 47.8mm at Chandulal Baradari, 43.8mm at LB Stadium among others.
The road dividers led to waterlogging at Khairtabad, Raj Bhavan with four-wheelers and two-wheelers finding it difficult to pave way through the water.
“Every year when it rains, the area around the Khairatabad RTA gets waterlogged. The slope from Taj Krishna towards Khairatabad RTA has been a vulnerable spot for waterlogging. Despite this, no efforts have been made to resolve the issue,” said Mahesh J, a resident of Somajiguda.
Waterlogging was also reported in other areas like Nagole, Old City, Chintalkunta, LB Nagar among other areas. The sudden downpour led to traffic snarls in many parts of the city.
The India Meteorological Department (IMD), Hyderabad has extended the thunderstorm and heavy rainfall warning in many districts including Hyderabad till July 22. This has been attributed to an east-west shear zone in addition to a trough and a cyclonic circulation that persists over Telangana.
As per IMD date, Hyderabad so far has recorded 85 per cent of excess rainfall with 356.1mm of rainfall as against normal of 309mm from June 1 till date.
