Hyderabad received 4.8 mm rainfall since Friday with Bahadurpura remain on top

Amid the ongoing unseasonal rain throughout Telangana, the state has so far received 3.1 millimeter average rainfall during the last 24 hours and the Hyderabad district accounts for 4.8 mm showers during the same period. On Saturday, heavy rain accompanied by thunderstorms and lightning occurred again in many parts of Hyderabad city.

As usual the Bahadurpura stood top among the list of all the 16 mandals of the Hyderabad district with 16 mm rainfall since Friday. A day ahead, the same Bahadurpura mandal received 40.9 mm rainfall on Thursday.

As the Zoo Park-Aram Ghar flyover bridge works are moving in a snarl pace on Bahadurpura stretch, the 4 kilometre passage from Mir Alam Filter to Aram Ghar cross road has turned into nightmare for the commuters as they have pass through the potholes ridden unmattled road submerged into rainwater.

It appears that the mammoth project was taken up without anticipating the hardship people may have to suffer due to natural disasters like unseasonal rains.

Interestingly, no other mandal has crossed the mark of 8 mm rainfall during the same period as the showers were being witnessed only for a few minutes during afternoon.

The other mandals that witnessed rainfall since Friday are include Golkonda (7.9 mm), Asifagar (7.4 mm), Bandlaguda (7.3 mm), Saidabad (7.1 mm), Nampally (6.3 mm), Charminar (6.0 mm), Amberpet (4.7 mm), Shaikpet (4.0 mm), Khairatabad (2.7 mm), Secunderabad (2.6 mm), Ameerpet (2.3 mm), Himayathnagar (2.0 mm), Musheerabad (1.7 mm), Tirumalgiri (0.8 mm) and Maredpally ( 0.7 mm).

As per the official statistics, the entire Telangana state has received an average rainfall of 3.1 mm since Friday morning. The highest rainfall of 69.6 mm was recorded at Raikode in Sangareddy district. Surprisingly, the Adilabad district which stood top among the entire state in receiving rainfall on Friday has witnessed a highest temperature of 34.4 C in the Bhoraj area on Saturday.

In GHMC limits, Rajendranagar mandal of Rangareddy district received the highest 14.8 mm rainfall during the last 24 hours.

As a result of abrupt showers power supply has disrupted in several areas mainly in Jubilee Hills, Banjara Hills, Filmnagar, Shaikpet, Tolichowki, Mehdipatnam, Bahadurpura, Rajendranagar, Manikonda, Narsingi, Patancheru and Ramachandrapuram etc where life came to a standstill due to this heavy rain accompanied with thunderstorm and lightning. People, especially the employees returning home from their offices caught by surprise due to the abrupt downpour.

Similar is the situation in neighbouring districts like Rangaredddy and Vikarabad hailstorm and lightning left people fascinating and even shocked. There were reports of lightning damaged houses in Momin Colony of Dharoor Mandal in Vikarabad. Electric poles were also uprooted in several places due to rain accompanied by gusty winds. Apart from this the unseasonal rain causes heavy damage to standing crops in several districts.
