Telangana on alert after IMD forecasts very heavy rainfall for next 48 hours

Hyderabad: The Indian Meteorological Department ( IMD) has projected heavy to very heavy rains for the next 48 hours at isolated locations in various parts of Telangana.

In isolated locations in Adilabad, KomaramBheem, Nirmal, Mancherial, Jagtial, Peddapale, Nizamabad, RajannaSircilla, Jayashankar Bhupalpally, Mulugu, Karimnagar, Warangal Urban, Warangal Rural, Mahabubabad, BhadradriKothagudem, Khammam, Nalgonda, Suryapet, and other districts of Telangana, IMD said heavy to very heavy rain is most likely to occur.

It also expected thunderstorm accompanied by lightning to occur at isolated places over Telangana.

The state government has given an advisory to all the district collectors, commissioner of police, and Superintendent of Police in the state to remain alert to meet any exigency.

“In low lying areas, massive flooding and waterlogging are likely to occur. The uprooting of trees and electric poles will lead to daily operations being interrupted.

Reservoirs, tanks, and streams may overflow, causing low-lying areas to flood, causing low bridges and cascades to overflow, posing a threat to traffic and people, Telangana Chief Secretary Somesh Kumar said.

According to the Telangana State Development Planning Society, highest Rainfall of 140.2 mm was recorded at Kothaguda Mandal in Mahabubabad district in the state. It also reported that 196 mandals received 20 to 59 percent excess rainfall, whereas 192 mandals received more than 60 percent rainfall.

Around 187 mandals in the state received regular rainfall, and until October 11, only 14 mandals saw a rainfall deficit.

The depression now lies over the west-central Bay of Bengal and over the next 24 hours it is predicted to deepen further into a deep depression. During the night of 12 October 2020, it is predicted to travel west northwestward and cross the north coast of Andhra Pradesh.
