Hyderabad has witnessed never-before rains almost leading to floods in September last year. The city has witnessed Rainfall like never in the last 100 years, the experts said. The infrastructure of the city has crumbled and the official machinery has failed completely to handle the situation.
We are just into September and nature has reminded us of the 'September Horror'. On Thursday, it has rained heavily in several parts of the city bringing last year memories. Most places of the city were inundated by heavy rains. Traffic was disrupted as rainwater got accumulated on the road. The power supply was cut off in several places.
The rains started at 7 PM and continued till late at night. Jubilee Hills, Shaikpet recorded the highest rainfall i.e 101.3mm followed by Kukatpally: 98.3 mm, Serlingampally-90 mm, SaroorNagar: 87.3 mm, and Balanagar 83.8mm. The heavy rains prompted the GHMC Enforcement Vigilance and Disaster Management (EV&DM) Director to urge people to stay indoors. The rains also indicated to the people that nothing has changed in the last year and the official machinery is similarly unprepared this time as well. People are hoping that at least nature would show mercy.
