Several areas experienced waterlogging and inundation in the city
The largesse of monsoons continued unabated in the city on Thursday too, with all areas experiencing rain without a break since early in the morning.
The Sun escaped from any appearance for a second day in a row, turning the weather almost frosty. Like Wednesday, it was a sharp drizzle that drenched the city, instead of a heavy downpour, sending throngs of people for a cuppa or corn on the cob.
Highest rainfall up to 9 p.m. was recorded in Saidabad at 2.5 centimetres, followed by Serilingampally, Ramachandrapuram, Asifnagar and Gachibowli all of which recorded over two centimetres of rain. Chandanagar, Borabanda, L.B.Nagar, Lingampally, Madhapur, Bandlaguda, Shaikpet, Kapra, Musheereabad, Charminar, Kukatpally, Hayatnagar, Miyapur, Banjara Hills, Khairatabad, Balanagar, Alwal, Mehdipatnam, Tolichowki, Qutbullahpur and several other areas recorded considerable rainfall.
Meteorology department has predicted generally cloudy sky, light to moderate rain or thundershowers in parts of the city on Friday too. Several areas experienced waterlogging and inundation in the city, besides sewage overflow, tree falls, power outages and other rain related grievances.
