Private and government schools in areas of the city like Balanagar, Qutubullapur and Malkagikiri remained shut due to the rains.
"It has been raining heavily in most parts of city. It is likely to cause water logging at most of places. I request to send teams in advance and during early part of the day to clear such areas at the earliest," Additional CP (Traffic) Jitender said in a statement.
As of Wednesday morning, Alwal and parts of Kukatpally were on high alert with authorities asked to initiate steps to avoid untoward incidents.
