Hyderabad: After a respite of just two days, rains were back to Hyderabad, disrupting normal lives and causing waterlogging in several parts of the city on Monday.

Several parts of Malkajgiri received heavy rainfall. Waterlogging was reported from Safil Colony, East Anandbagh and Vishnupuri Colony. As per data from the Telangana State Development Planning Society (TSDPS), until 6 pm, East Anandbagh received 84 mm of rain, Madhusudhan Nagar 69.3 mm and Mettuguda 48.3 mm. In fact, East Anandbagh received most of its rainfall of 73.8 mm in a very heavy spell in just an hour between 10 am and 11 am.

Waterlogging was also reported at Hyderguda near Apollo Hospital, which slowed down traffic moving from Tarnaka to Malkajgiri considerably. Streets were inundated at Bapu Ghat, parts of Begumpet and Attapur.

Until 7 pm, the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Council (GHMC) control room received 65 complaints of waterlogging and 10 complaints of tree falls. Due to the rise in level of Musi river, officials closed the Puranapul, Moosarambagh and Chaderghat bridges. Due to the rains, three feeders broke down — at Jana Chaitanya, Sai Baba Nagar and Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, which led to power outages in these areas.
