The Southwest Monsoon continued to drench the city of Hyderabad on Tuesday, due to a low pressure area over the Bay of Bengal, off the Odisha coast.
The city witnessed a standstill as commuters made their way to work on Tuesday morning, with arterial roads inundated and waterlogged.
With the rain expected to continue until Wednesday evening, and with no respite in sight, many took to social media, to vent their ire about the state of the city with each passing Monsoon season.
The Hyderabad Traffic police too, urged citizens not to travel, unless necessary.
