Hyderabad: The aftermath of Monday evening’s heavy rains has left the Cyberabad police on high alert, urging employees in the city’s IT corridor to exercise utmost caution while commuting back home. As the downpour inundated several roads, causing flooding and resulting in major traffic snarls, authorities are concerned about the safety of commuters.
In an official advisory, the Cyberabad police emphasized the need for vigilance and careful travel, particularly for IT and other employees who frequently traverse the affected areas. With the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) Hyderabad forecasting further rainfall during the night, the situation remains unpredictable and potentially hazardous.
“All IT and other employees should exercise caution when travelling home in vehicles. It is better to leave the offices, considering the weather forecast,” the Cyberabad police advised, emphasizing the importance of prioritizing safety amidst the adverse weather conditions.
The heavy rains have taken a toll on the major thoroughfares connecting the twin cities, leading to extensive traffic gridlocks and hampering the regular flow of vehicles. Commuters are facing significant delays and challenges in reaching their destinations due to the waterlogged streets.
