    Heavy rains have caused problems in several districts of Telangana, including Nizamabad, Kamareddy, Sangareddy, Medak, Vikarabad, and Gadwal. Bridges were breached and flood water overflowed on culverts and small barrages, cutting off road connectivity in many villages. In Vikarabad district, an RTC bus got stuck in flood waters, and passengers had to wait for one hour until rescue teams arrived.

    Due to continuous rain for the past 24 hours, Nizamabad district officials declared holidays for all educational institutions. Sriram Sagar lifted four gates to manage heavy inflows from catchment areas. Railway stations, bus stations, local markets, and low-lying areas were flooded. People were advised to stay indoors as the Pulang rivulet in Bodhan town overflowed.
