The current situation in Telangana due to heavy rains
Heavy rains: Schools in Telangana to remain shut till Monday
Hyderabad: The Telangana government announced the extension of holidays for educational institutions up to July 16, in view of continuing rains and unfavourable weather conditions. Authorities have been put on high alert as incessant rains continue to flood the state.
The government had on Sunday, announced a three-day holiday for educational institutions across Telangana in view of a red alert issued by the Indian Meteorological Department for various parts of the state.
With incessant rains in the upper basin of the Godavari river in Telangana, all reservoirs are filled to the brim. Water bodies are almost full in the Godavari basin.
Telangana chief minister K Chandrashekar Rao on Tuesday at a high-level meeting reviewed the flood position in the state and instructed the concerned irrigation officials to utilize the water.
As per the instructions of the chief minister, the irrigation department is now focusing on how to restore the levels and plans to release depending on the requirement of farmers. So that they can take up hassle-free cultivation during the monsoon season, a press note informed.
With the Sriram Sagar project and Pocharam in Nizamabad, Swarna and Kadem projects in Adilabad and Sripada Yellampalli in Peddapalli full to the brim, officials are confident of fulfilling the water requirements of farmers.
Chief secretary Somesh Kumar had directed the collectors to step up vigil by setting up a control room in the collectorate. Irrigation, Panchayat Raj, Municipal Administration and Energy departments have been directed to ensure that no problems arise due to the incessant rains.
A press note from the Telangana government on Tuesday said that due to heavy rains over the past week, water levels in the Sri Ram Sagar project touched 74.83 trillion cubic meters (TMC) out of its full capacity of 90.31 TMC at 12.00 noon on Tuesday. The inflow into the project was 81,730 cusecs and officials released 86,118 cusecs of water by opening nine gates.
Earlier, the gates of the Komaram Bheem project in the Asifabad district were opened to let the water flow downstream due to the heavy rains. Medigatta, Saraswati and Parvati barrages under the Kaleshwaram project were also receiving inflows. Authorities opened the gates to release the water.
Other irrigation projects in Telangana also receive heavy inflows due to rains in the catchment areas. A statement from the Telangana government on Tuesday also said all the reservoirs in the Godavari basin are almost full to the brim due to the heavy rains.
“Telangana is likely to have light to moderate rain over most places. Heavy to very heavy in isolated places. Very heavy to extreme in 2 areas. 10-11 districts of the state have been issued warnings. This is the highest amount of rainfall till July since 2015," — K Naga Ratna
TS EAMCET 2022 is not the first exam to be postponed due to heavy rainfall in Telangana. Before this, even TS ECET 2022 was postponed due to heavy rain and resulting bad weather. In addition to this, even Osmania University and JNTU Hyderabad postponed some of their exams.
In situations like these which are unfavourable and even after the pause of the heavy rain, there seems to be high damage to habitation and transport provision which might take some time to clear up. Therefore, TS EAMCET 2022 for the Engineering stream, which will be held in a week, is likely to be postponed. The government of Telangana hasn't announced anything yet.
Stay safe during these torrential rains. We hope for the best — Team EAMCET SPACE
