In what is called a brief relief from scorching heat, some localities in twin cities received rains and clouds were seen in the sky. Though the people are caught in the grip of heat waves that are likely to hit for another three days, the brief spell of rain gave them a sort of respite.
There were showers at Tank Bund, Liberty, Secretariat, GHMC area, Domalguda, Amberpet, LB Nagar, Uppal, Habsiguda and other localities. Rainfall was also recorded at Saidabad, Champapet, Mallapur, Boduppal, ECIL, Kapra and other places. Even as the people, wrapping themselves with handkerchiefs and small shawls around their faces and heads, prefer to remain indoors and abstained from making it to the streets, the sudden showers gave a sort of reprieve for a while. At some places people saw thunderbolts. The temperature in the city recorded 42 to 43 degrees Celsius these days forcing the people to confine to their homes. (NSS)
