    Heavy rains hit Hyderabad on Sunday, causing chaos and disruptions in several areas. The downpour, accompanied by strong winds, led to water logging and traffic congestion in places like Rajendernagar, Uppal, L B Nagar, Begumpet, Mehdipatnam, and Dilsukhnagar. Motorists in the Old City faced challenges navigating through flooded streets, with water levels reaching up to four feet in some places.

    According to the Telangana State Development & Planning Society (TSDPS), Charminar received the highest rainfall at 71.8 mm, followed by Asif Nagar, Nampally, and Golconda. The rains began on Saturday night, with areas like Khairtabad and Kukatpally experiencing significant rainfall.
