Hyderabad: Chief Secretary Santhi Kumari has directed district collectors to remain vigilant as the India Meteorological Department (IMD) Hyderabad has forecasted heavy rainfall in Telangana over the next three days. She noted that heavy rainfall has been occurring in the state for the past three days, and with more downpours expected, strict measures must be taken in coordination with all departments to prevent any loss of life or property.
On Tuesday, CS reviewed the situation through a teleconference with district collectors. She said that as tanks and streams in various districts are already full, appropriate measures should be taken.
She further stressed the importance of making adequate safety arrangements at causeways, culverts, and bridges as a precautionary measure against heavy rainfall and floods in Telangana. Regular teleconferences with mandal level revenue, PR, and other officials should be conducted to minimize damage.
