Rains that have been lashing the Indian city and surrounding areas for more than a week have resulted in heavy inflows at the Himayatsagar reservoir. With incessant rains upstream of the catchment areas of the reservoir, the Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board (HMWSSB) lifted three of its flood gates on Tuesday evening to release water downstream of the Musi river.
