Viral videos are being spread on the Internet, showing the massive attack of weather on people’s lives here. In the clips, vehicles look like toy cars which can be swept away easily on the road. A man who try to cross the street is also washed away in the furious water flow.

However, most deaths in Hyderabad were not because of drowning but due to walls and houses collapsed in the flood. The heavy downpour reportedly claimed three lives of a family in the Gaganpahad area. Their house was dragged down by the massive amount of water.

The authorities recommend people to take alternative routes or better stay at safe spots until the water retreats. Police force has been deployed to divert the vehicle movement on the outskirts.

The deluge is predicted to continue in the next hours while some isolated places in the city even witness heavier rainfall which may exceed 20 cm per day. Many other areas across the western and southern part of the country will also experience downpour with different rainfalls. Please take care when you have a plan of going out during these days.
