As heavy rains came down on Hyderabad’s Tolichowki on Tuesday night, the Disaster Response Force of the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC), equipped with boats, evacuated residents of Nadeem Colony, with rainwater entering several homes. The evacuees were shifted to a shelter by the Disaster Management officials.
Several low-lying areas in the city, such as East Anandbagh and Raj Bhavan Road, were inundated with rain water. In Hyderabad’s Saroornagar, which received extremely heavy rainfall, a car and minivan were washed away due to the force of flowing rain water.
In Nagaram, Chakradhara enclave — a gated community with about 80 homes — rainwater entered into every house, forcing the residents to reach out to authorities. A similar situation prevailed in Saket Housing colony in ECIL.
