Heavy rain accompanied by strong gales lashed the twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad last evening. Commuters going back home from work were caught by surprise. Cars, bikes and pedestrians had to wade through water to reach home. Hundreds of trees and electric poles were uprooted and fell to the ground. Power was cut off in many colonies. Tarnaka, Ramnagar and Vidyanagar areas were drenched in the rain. Sanathanagar and Sanjeevreddynagar areas experienced high speed winds and heavy rain.
