Hyderabad and other places in Telangana received heavy rainfall accompanied by squall late on Tuesday night and early on Wednesday, throwing normal life out of gear in the state capital.
Chevella, neighbouring Hyderabad, and Khammam received as high as seven cm of rainfall each, while parts of Hyderabad city got six cm of rain, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) said.
Electricity supply was affected in several localities of the city as the squall resulted in the trees getting uprooted and caused disturbance to the power supply network.
Personnel from Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) were engaged in clearing the debris. The electricity supply was also being restored, official sources said.
Despite the rains, there was no major change in maximum temperatures recorded in Telangana during the last 24 hours, as per the IMD’s weather report.
The temperatures were above normal at one or two places in Telangana.
The highest maximum temperature of 43 degree Celsius was recorded in Ramagundam, Nizamabad and Adilabad, the report said.
Light to moderate rain or thundershowers are very likely to occur at isolated places over Telangana in the next 24 hours, the IMD said.
