    Hyderabad is facing heavy rainfall since Tuesday morning, causing chaos in the city. Drainages are overflowing and roads have turned into canals, with people struggling in knee-deep water. The GHMC officials have urged residents to stay indoors unless it’s an emergency.

    Many parts of the city are underwater, leading to difficulties for motorists. Vehicles have been washed away in several places due to the rain. Bikes and cars are stuck in floodwater, blocking main roads and causing inconvenience for drivers. The floodwater is particularly heavy near the Musapet metro station, affecting traffic going towards Kukatpally and coming from Erragadda.
