If you thought 2020 was done making our lives miserable, then think again. From the past three days, Telangana and nearby areas have been experiencing incessant rainfalls leading to waterlogging and flood-like situation in major parts of the city.

Just two days ago, the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) had reportedly issued warnings for Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, fearing flood across the states pertaining to heavy rainfalls. And this morning, social media was flooded with visuals of vehicles and homes submerged in water in Hyderabad.

Traffic and daily life were disrupted at various places. According to a report by Mid-day, around 13 people died in Telangana due to flood-related accidents. Authorities had to open flood gates that added insult to injury.

These visuals from the state will send chills down your spine.

A man was washed away in the force of the floodwaters at Barkas near Falaknuma.

Rescue operations are being carried out and residents are asked to not venture out unless an emergency.

As reported by NDTV, the IMD has predicted heavy to very heavy rain at isolated places over Telangana from 8.30 am on October 14 till 8.30 am on October 15.
