Many areas in and around Chanchalguda reportedly experienced repeated power disruptions in the wee hours of Friday, due to the sudden cloudburst which had begun in the midnight.

The tedious power disruptions continued till 7 a.m., and included thousands of services falling under the purview of the 33/11KV Chanchalguda substation.

Officials from the CPDCL informed that the input supplies from the 220KV Chandrayanagutta substation to the Chanchalguda substation were snapped twice during the night, triggering the widespread outages. These apart, there were many other feeder-trips resulting in blackouts throughout the city due to the rain in the early hours of Friday. Chairman-Managing Director of CPDCL V. Anil Kumar visited Chanchalguda substation in the morning and reviewed the position, sources informed.
