Traffic on Hyderabad-Bellary road, in Ananthapur district, came to halt, as the road is waterlogged, due to incessant rain since last night. Maravanka stream is flooded, due to heavy inflows in the upper reaches and the water has inundated lowlying areas. It has flown in to homes, making people come out in to the open. The roads are submerged in knee-deep water, disrupting traffic. Police and municipal authorities have swung in to action and are evacuating people from lowlying areas. Even the divider stones were swept away in the force of the water, on the main road, leading for police to place wire meshes, to stop people from being washed away.
