Rain lashes Tirupati


Press Trust of India  |  Tirupati 

Heavy rain accompanied by lightning and gale lashed Tirupati and the hill shrine of Lord Venkateswara near here late in the evening,today.

Several areas in Tirupati plunged into darkness as the electricity department cut off the power supply as a precautionary measure, sources said.

However, power supply was not affected on the Tirumala hills.

The downpour brought respite to residents from the scorching heat.

The temperature plummeted to 27 degree celsius in Tirupati and surrounding areas, which have been experiencing temperatures between 40-42 degree celsius since April 30.
