Respite from heat

The rain and overcast skies came as relief to the people as the district has been reeling under high temperatures over the last few days. A tree fell on a parked autorickshaw on Sambamurthy Road due to strong winds.

Meanwhile, lower tropospheric westerly winds continue to prevail over Andhra Pradesh and Yanam.
