Hyderabad: A 15-minute spell of heavy rain and a 100-kmph gale caused such damage that the National Disaster Relief Force was called out in the city on Friday.

Two persons were killed, one in a wall collapse at Tejaswinagar Colony, Attapur and another when a water tank uprooted by the gale fell on him at Jahangirnagar in Bhavaninagar.

The storm during the evening peak hour caused massive traffic jams. The winds blew off roof-tops and toppled at least 197 trees, according to a preliminary count. As many as 67 transformers burst snapping power supply to dozens of areas.
