    River Munneru in Khammam district is flooding and causing several colonies to be submerged. The district administration is working to relocate the residents to relief centers. The flood level in the river is at a dangerous level, reaching 30.7 feet at 5 pm. District Collector VP Gautham, Police Commissioner Vishnu S Warrier, and Assistant Collector Radhika Gupta are overseeing the relief operations.

    Despite alerts and appeals, some residents in the affected colonies have not moved to safety. Officials had to go through the floodwater to reach them and encourage them to evacuate. Around 50 people were provided shelter at Government Junior College and Nayabazar School in the city. Rescue teams were also deployed to help those stranded at a meditation center in Padmavathi Nagar. The affected areas include Venkateswara Nagar, Motinagar, Bokkalagadda, Jalagam Nagar, FCI area, and Danavaigudem.
