HYDERABAD:  Heavy Rains lashed several parts of the city on Saturday afternoon, inundating roads and hindering traffic movement for several hours. As a result, waterlogging and traffic snarls were witnessed in many parts of the city. More such scenes may occur during the next three days, as the India Meteorological Department (IMD) on Saturday issued a three-day rainfall warning for Telangana from September 5 to 7. 
Moosarambagh Bridge was closed as its causeway was overflowing with water.  The rains prompted the GHMC’s Enforcement Vigilance and Disaster Management (EVDM) wing to issue an advisory requesting people to stay indoors. Citizens can dial 040-29555500 to seek assistance from the DRF (disaster response force).
