Hyderabad Rains: City continues to be drowned still

Friday, October 16th, 2020, 10:15:20 PM IST

A major depression passed through Hyderabad in the last few days, which caused heavy rains all over the city. As a result, all the low-lying areas, and areas surrounding lakes and other water bodies have been flooded terribly.

There were clear skies in the city for the last 2 days, but this did not bring about any relief for the people who are suffering because of water clogging in their houses. The National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) and Disaster Response Force (DRF) of Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) have been carrying our relief operations for the past 2 days, but situations continue to remain dire in many areas.

Colonies near Pedda Cheruvu lake in Ramanthapur, Uppal, Saroornagar, Hayat Nagar and near Palle Cheruvu lake in Mailardevpally continued to be waterlogged. People living in these areas have lost their livelihoods, and are desperately waiting for some relief.
