A car is seen being swept towards another car which is already on top of the other at a flooded street in Secunderabad. A loud thud is heard afterwards as the car makes contact with the stationary cars, pushing the one on top backwards in visuals from the district which is one of the worst affected districts in Telangana that has been witnessing heavy rain for the last three days.
In another 20-second video, two vehicles -- a car and a delivery van -- are seen being swept away in the strong currents reportedly shot in a residential colony in Green Park Colony in Saroornagar, a suburb in Hyderabad.
Unbelievable scenes as cars, even heavy vehicles, are like free floating objects just carried by the force of water; this one recd as a forward, said to be from Green Park Colony #Saroornagar#HyderabadRains@ndtv@ndtvindia#FloatingInHyderabadpic.twitter.com/Go4dBVmGaT- Uma Sudhir (@umasudhir) October 13, 2020
A video shared last night showed a parked car slowly being swept away by the strong currents in a residential colony in Hyderabad.
How eerie and scary when a car with no driver inside starts moving, even changes direction and speeds away, because of the force of the flood waters; #ChaltheeKaNaamGaadi quips @Iamtssudhir, little you can do to stop it without risking your life #HyderabadRains@email@example.com/DhEhTCOuDw- Uma Sudhir (@umasudhir) October 13, 2020
Several such visuals have emerged from the state capital which is among the 14 districts affected in Telangana.
Hyderabad has received 20 cm rains in the last 24 hours. Fifteen people have died in Telangana in the last 48 hours following incessant rains that has led to flooding on roads and inundation of some low-lying areas.
The weather department, in its latest forecast -- valid from 8.30 am on October 14 till 8.30 am on October 15, has predicted heavy to very heavy rain at isolated places over Telangana.
The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation has advised people to stay indoors.
"We are witnessing unprecedented rainfall in the city. A high of 25 cm rainfall has been recorded at LB Nagar!! Rains are expected to continue for a few more hours. Citizens are requested to remain indoors and stay safe. DRF teams are striving to normalize the situation," the Director Of Enforcement,Vigilance & Disaster Management, GHMC tweeted.
The rains were triggered by a deep depression over the west-central Bay of Bengal leading to heavy rains across several districts of Telangana, according to the weather department.
