Alwal was one of the worst affected area. A lake in the area was overflowing resulting nearby10 adjacent colonies to be completely water logged at above knee level and hampering the traffic movement on the main road.
40 Swayamsevaks from Alwal and Secunderabad bhag participated in the day long sewa activity. 25 of them were involved in distributing 2000 food and water packets from morning 9 AM to 5 PM. 15 of them were participated in easing the traffic on Alwal main road from morning 8 AM to 6PM
In Nizampet village, houses and parking areas in apartments were completely under rain water due to overflowing of nearby lake. Sensing this dangerous inflow of rain water into the lake, 150 swayamsevaks put 3000 sand sacks to prevent sudden outflow of water or any leakages that may weaken the banks of lake. They worked around the clock along with local youth and administration to ensure that the overflowing lake was cordoned off and colonies are protected from heavy water logging.
