Incessant rain since early this morning has caused havoc in Hyderabad. Hussain Sagar lake water level has overreached its capacity, forcing Mayor Bonthu Rammohan to open the gates and allow the water to flow out. People in low-lying areas have been alerted before hand. Every lane, every road in Hyderabad is waterlogged. People are wading through knee-deep water. Houses and at least two major hospitals are flooded. Traffic has come to a standstill for more than two-and-a-half hours.
