Telangana is witnessing torrential rainfall for past 48 hours which has caused floods and waterlogging in several areas, especially Hyderabad. A similar situation was in Andhra Pradesh where all major water reservoirs are full to their brim due to the massive inflow following heavy rains caused by the deep depression that moved in from the Bay of Bengal. Yesterday, five people also died in the state in rain-related incidents.
