Hyderabad: The city is likely to get a relief from the incessant rains that lashed the State over the last couple of days, flooding several areas and throwing life out of gear.
The respite, according to Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation’s Enforcement Vigilance and Disaster Management director Vishwajit Kampati is because the cloud system induced by Cyclone Gulab had changed direction overnight.
In a tweet on Tuesday, the EVDM director said only light showers were expected in the city.
“The Cyclone Gulab induced cloud system has changed direction overnight and is seen to be moving out of Telangana into Maharashtra & Gujarat states. Very light sporadic showers, if at all & mostly clear skies may be expected in the city,” he tweeted.
Meanwhile, 170 emergency teams and 92 static labour teams have been deployed in the GHMC limits to attend to rain-related complaints.
As a part of relief measures, food was distributed to 200 families through Annapurna canteens in low-lying areas in Mehdipatnam. Mayor G Vijaya Laxmi also monitored the situation in the city and also held a tele-conference with engineers and GHMC Deputy Commissioners. She instructed them to focus on low-lying areas and clear stagnant water.
