Hyderabad: Heavy rains on Saturday night and Sunday afternoon have damaged city and created the usual potholes. Even national highways passing through the city are badly damaged with sinkholes and washed out bitumen.

Waterlogging on main city roads gave commuters a bad time. The areas badly affected were Pillar No. 100 near Moghal Ka Nala, Nanalnagar free left area, under Langer Houz flyover, Putlibowli towar-ds Sultan Bazaar (entire Koti), Che Number near Amberpet, entire Nimboli-adda, Ramanthapur (near TV studio), Siddimbar Bazaar, Rang Mahal, RTC Crossroads, at Hyderabad Police commissioner's office, PG Law College, Bowenpally and KBR Park.
