Hyderabad: Several areas in the old city were flooded after heavy rains on Saturday night in the city.
With memories of last Tuesday’s downpour, residents in several low-lying areas panicked and rushed to the upper floors of their homes or sought refuge in neighboring homes for fear of a repeat of the horror.
Panic reigned for a while at Al Jubail Colony, Hashamabad, Subhan Colony, Alinagar and Crystal Garden, which were badly affected by the rains on Tuesday after an increase in water flow in the nala moving through the area.
Local leaders of Hafeezbaba Nagar warned the densely populated area to move to the upper floors after heavy water flow from the Gurram Cheruvu tank. Royal Colony and Nabil Colony have already flooded the water
in some areas up to 10 feet high.
Heavy waterlogging has been reported from several major routes in the older parts of the city, including Bahadurpura, Chandrayangutta, Engine Bowli, Mir Alam Mandi, Goshamahal and Mallepally.
