    Hyderabad is experiencing heavy rain, causing flooding in low-lying areas of the city. The roads are waterlogged, leading to slow movement of vehicles, especially in the IT zone. Meteorological officials have predicted another two hours of heavy rain and have advised people to stay indoors unless it’s an emergency. They have also suggested that IT employees work from home and emergency services employees take precautions while traveling. In case of emergencies, people are advised to call Dial 100.

    The rain has been ongoing for two days, starting early in the morning and lasting for about three hours. This has resulted in flooding in low-lying areas and knee-deep water on the roads, causing vehicles to be stuck. The entire city has been experiencing continuous rainfall from Kukatpally to Hayatnagar.
