Hyderabad: Citizens who have been severely hit by heavy rains over the past few days can now heave a sigh of relief with meteorologists of Skymet saying the worst is over for Hyderabad.
“Most of the rainfall will now be limited to patchy spells. The rain-bearing trough has moved towards West Bengal and eastern parts of the country. So, there will be no heavy spells of rain,” Mahesh Palawat, Skymet’s chief meteorologist told Deccan Chronicle.
He though said light and patchy spells of rain will continue till October 4.
Over the past few days, rainfall had exposed the uglier side of the city with clogged drains, inundated roads and worse, three deaths.
In the aftermath of these rains, residents of water-logged areas like Alwal and Lothkunta were dreading the thought of heavy rains on Sunday.
“After three days of water-logged streets, we would not like to have another spell of rain. It took three days for the water on streets to clear off,” said K. Srinivas Varma, a resident of Alwal.
Though it rained on Sunday, rains were mostly limited to eastern parts of the city, like Kapra, Uppal, Keesara, Abdullapurmet, A. S. Rao Nagar and Moula Ali.
While Keesara received 65 mm of rain, the rain recorded at GHMC Office in Kapra was 14.5 mm. It was 12.3 mm at Kalavancha, 12 mm at Mallapur Biodiversity Park and 11.3 mm at the Rajiv Nagar Community Hall....
