A local shopkeeper in the area said, "The water started entering the colony yesterday afternoon and we immediately called the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC). They only came today morning. By the time, the water was already knee deep."
Many residents used stones and soil to try and keep the water from entering their homes.
"We will go in and judge the situation. Accordingly, we will deploy boats if necessary and move the people along with their important belongings to a nearby rehabilitation camp," he added.
