HYDERABAD: Many low-lying areas and roads in the city were inundated on Friday, thanks to the sudden heavy downpour. In some places where the intensity of rains was the highest, especially in the Secunderabad area, the rainwater stagnated in colony streets was knee-deep.

Many people from the city posted pictures and videos of waterlogged streets and houses on Twitter, calling upon the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) to take action.
