After causing havoc in several North Indian states, continuous rainfall has now extended to the southern states, prompting authorities to advise locals to stay indoors and take necessary precautions. Red alerts have been issued in various districts of Karnataka, Telangana, and Kerala, warning of heavy to extremely heavy rainfall.
Due to the anticipated heavy rain today, Telangana has declared a holiday for all schools and colleges to ensure safety. Tragically, heavy rain has already resulted in the loss of two lives in Mahabubnagar district, Telangana, where two girls were washed away in an overflowing stream. The downpour has led to flooding in low-lying areas and disruptions in road connectivity in various parts of the state.
In response to the situation, the Hyderabad police has requested IT companies to conduct a phased logout of their employees to prevent traffic jams and ensure safe travel.
Meanwhile, in Karnataka, the weather department has issued warnings to people in coastal regions, advising them to avoid areas prone to waterlogging. Additionally, they have been urged to stay away from vulnerable structures that may collapse due to the continuous rainfall.
As heavy rain continues to impact these states, authorities are closely monitoring the situation and urging citizens to prioritize their safety by staying informed and following precautionary measures
