Fears of heavy rainfall on Thursday came true as eight areas in Hyderabad recorded over 20 mm rainfall in just 60 minutes.

Life came to a grinding halt in several parts of the city, as overflowing streets, water logging in low lying areas and arterial junctions made life of people miserable.

West Maredpally received the highest amount of 31 mm rainfall followed by Chilakalaguda (30 mm) and Monda Market (28.7 mm). Srinagar Colony, Trimulgherry, Balanagar, Fever Hospital and Narayanguda received over 20 mm rain
