He also directed the collectors to step up vigil by setting up a control room in the collectorate. Irrigation, Panchayat Raj, Municipal Administration and Energy departments should ensure that no problems arise due to the incessant rains.
Somesh Kumar stated that heavy rains have been reported in the districts of Asifabad, Nirmal, Nizamabad, Peddapalli, Siricilla, Bhupalpally and Mulugu. As the tanks, ponds and reservoirs are in spate, officials should be on high alert and see that sandbags are kept ready if breaches to vulnerable tanks take place.
“People living in low-lying areas may be shifted to special camps if necessary. Any damages to roads should be immediately repaired,” he added.
