Osman Sagar and Himayatsagar reservoirs have experienced an increase in water flow due to the increased flow of water into the Musi river, so the Hyderabad Metro Water Works and Sewerage Board was directed to monitor the water flow into the reservoirs in close coordination with the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC).

Relief camps have already been identified by the GHMC, and vulnerable people will be shifted there if needed.

To assess the situation, Mr. Somesh Kumar held a teleconference with officials from different departments and district collectors. As a result of the heavy rains, he directed the officials to prevent any casualties. He said the rain situation in the State is closely monitored by Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao, currently in New Delhi. In addition to causeways, low-lying areas, and breaches to roads and tanks, district collectors were tasked with remaining vigilant.
