Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) Commissioner Lokesh Kumar said due to heavy rains on October 13, various localities were flooded and about 35,309 families were affected.

Another 2,100 families were evacuated to safer places on October 17th.

He said the GHMC intensified relief operations and was taking steps to restore normalcy in the flooded areas. The Zonal Commissioners, Additional Commissioners and Deputy Commissioners are on the ground and monitor the relief operations and distribution of the Prime Minister’s aid kits to the affected people.

As the weather office has forecast more rain in the next two days, GHMC, as a precaution, is evacuating lowland residents.

The official said CM aid ration equipment, along with 3 blankets, with a total value of Rs 2,800, are being distributed to the affected families. So far 20,000 rations and blankets have been distributed, and the remaining equipment and blankets will be distributed soon. Similarly milk, bread and biscuits are also being distributed among those affected.

Authorities also distributed 90,000 meals during lunch time and 60,000 meals for dinner.

The engineering arm and Disaster Response Force (DRF) teams are pumping water out of apartment basements and flooded colonies. While 72 teams and 106 water pumps by engineering and maintenance and 170 monsoon teams with 202 water pumps are engaged in the activity.

In order to contain water-borne and vector-borne diseases, entomology and DRF teams are undertaking activities such as operations against larvae and spraying bleaching powder and sodium hypochlorite in basements and flooded areas.

Thirty ships, each from the DRF and fire services, were put into service for spraying sodium hypochlorite.

Meanwhile, Viswajit Kampati Director, Implementation, Vigilance and Disaster Management personally oversaw the DRF rescue operations at Hafiz Baba Nagar in Chandrayangutta.

“DRF teams rescued over 500 citizens from this area alone and 2,500 citizens in the city and relocated them to safety. We are trying to reach every citizen in need in the shortest possible time,” he wrote on Twitter.

Cyberabad Police Commissioner VC Sajjanar also visited the flood-affected areas. He reviewed the situation in Rajendra Nagar, Gagan Pahad village basin, Old Kurnool Road and Ali Nagar area.
