Heavy rains recently drenched parts of Telangana, interrupting everyday operations. On Tuesday, during the severe rain, a video of a car dangling from the flooded streets of Sircilla town went popular on social media. To save it from being swept away, the vehicle owner tied it down with ropes. He had this idea after many vehicles, including cars, were carried away in floodwaters caused by severe rainfall in the region since the previous night. The other ends of the ropes were connected to concrete pillars on top of the owner's house.

The state's Rajanna Sircilla area has been one of the most impacted by the floods. The roadways of Sircilla town were submerged, and residential areas were swamped. Rainwater also entered the newly built collectorate building. Ganesh idols that had been brought to town for sale in advance of the festival were also washed away.
Police officers were spotted escorting residents out of the secluded communities. Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) Disaster Response Force (DRF) troops were dispatched to Sircilla for rescue and relief efforts following the directions of Municipal Administration Minister K.T. Rama Rao, who represents the Sircilla seat.
The teams were equipped with boats and other equipment. In light of the ongoing flooding and rains, the teams will support the district administration in relief and rescue efforts, as per the GHMC's Director of Enforcement, Vigilance, and Disaster Management.
