    The heavy rainfall in Hyderabad over the past week has caused problems for people living in low-lying areas. The rain has led to water stagnation, uprooted trees, damaged vehicles, overflowing manholes, and extensive road damage. Life has been difficult for the past few days due to continuous rain, and it is expected to continue for two more days. Many low-lying areas have already been flooded, making people’s lives miserable.

    Parts of the city, especially those in low-lying regions, have experienced flooding due to incessant rain, gusty winds, and thunderstorms. This has affected several localities in Boduppal, including Ram Reddy Nagar Colony, Vishnu Nagar Colony, East Anand Bagh, Nagole, Ayyappa Colony, Balaji Nagar, Jawahar Nagar, and Peerzadiguda.

    Residents complain that they have been facing similar situations for the past couple of years due to the lack of pipeline upgrades. Waterlogging is a common problem in low-lying areas, with overflowing manholes and drainage systems. Despite their pleas to officials, the issue remains unresolved.

    The flooding has caused significant damage to houses and household items. People living close to nalas (drainage channels) and near lakes are urging the civic body to clear garbage immediately. Areas like Nagole and LB Nagar constituency have experienced sewage overflow along with rainwater.
