Power outages, traffic jams during heavy rains

It is true that Hyderabad’s rainfall brings respite from the summer heat, but it also poses a number of challenges, especially when it comes to power cuts and heavy traffic.

Since the city’s electrical infrastructure is not always capable of withstanding severe rainfall, outages can continue for hours. Heavy traffic is another issue that emerges with rainfall in Hyderabad. The city’s roads are frequently congested, and the situation worsens when it rains. Traffic jams can cause lengthy delays, making it difficult for individuals to arrive on time. Residents are asked to remain cautious and take necessary precautions in light of the forecasts issued by both IMD Hyderabad and TSDPS. It is advised to avoid traveling during the heavy downpour and, if possible, to stay indoors.
