In three districts of Andhra Pradesh, rain disrupts daily life

At 8 AM, floodwater was released at a rate of 2,500 cusecs, according to Ravichandra Kumar, a junior engineer working on the Telugu Ganga project.

VIJAYAWADA: The residents of the YSR, Prakasam, and Nandyal districts received much-needed relief from the hot heat thanks to heavy rainfall. The downpour, however, also interfered with daily routine because it took people off surprise. The YSR district’s Kondapuram had the greatest Sunday rainfall of 16 cm.

In the meantime, numerous instances of individuals becoming stranded because of flash floods in specific locations were also reported. Thirteen passengers and the bus driver of an APSRTC bus were stranded in the YSR district as Isuka Vaagu grew due to the heavy rains near Jammalamadugu. A group of Jammalamadugu police, led by Circle Inspector U Sadashivaiah, were successful in saving every passenger from the bus.

During a flash flood on Sunday night, eight persons who had gone for a picnic on an island in the middle of the River Penna near Chennur were stranded in the water. Four of them were able to exit the River unaided. The remaining four people were saved using a boat and ropes after an SOS was made to the police and tax officials.

Two children were lost in the floodwater of the River Sagileru as torrential rains battered the Nallamala forest region at Giddalur in the Prakasam district. Police arrived to the scene quickly and saved them. Similar to this, a man and his daughter who fell into the Pedda Vaagu between Mutukula village in Prakasam district and Gudlapalli village in Palnadu district were rescued by police and locals.
