Four districts including Nellore, Chittoor and Kadapa have been devastated with heavy rains lashed for the last ten days. Rain water is still overflowing at several places even though there is a respite from rains. Low-lying areas were filled with water in cities, towns and villages. Roads to a length of hundreds of kilometres have been damaged with breaching of tanks near the roads. Officials concerned are air dropping food packets and drinking water sachets to people in villages through helicopters which were marooned with floodwater. The NDRF and revenue staff have intensified rescue and relief operations.
