    Hyderabad experienced heavy rainfall on Tuesday, causing the city’s lakes to reach their maximum capacity. Ameenpur Pedda Cheruvu, in particular, saw significant inflows, raising concerns among residents about potential flooding if the rain continues.

    The short spell of rain also led to Suraram lake, IDL lake, Nizampet lake, and Ameenpur lake swelling, with their stormwater channels overflowing. Residents noted the presence of numerous dead fish in the water and along the lake’s banks, attributed to industrial effluents discharged nearby.
