The Meteorological Department has issued a warning of heavy to very heavy rainfall over isolated parts of the state, especially the erstwhile districts of Adilabad, Karimnagar, Nizamabad, Warangal and Khammam.
The Meteorological department cautioned that massive flooding and water-logging are likely to occur in low lying areas. Falling of trees and electric poles can happen leading to disruption of normal activities. Reservoirs, tanks and streams may overflow causing inundation of low-lying areas and cause low bridges and causeways to overflow, posing threat to traffic and people.
The Chief Secretary requested all the Collectors to put the entire district administration on alert and strictly follow the flood protocol communicated earlier.
