Kamareddy: Paddy farmers bore the brunt of nature’s fury in Kamareddy district, with unseasonal rains accompanied by strong winds and hail storms lashing many parts of the district on Sunday night.

The untimely rains caused damage to crops in Pitlam, Nagireddypet, Lingampet, Bichkunda, Bikkanur, Domakonda, Yellareddy, Nizamsagar, Tadvai, Birkur, Nasurallabad and Banswada mandals. The hailstorm wreaked havoc on several crops. The paddy crop, which suffered the maximum damage, fell on the ground in many places due to gusty winds and hailstorms. Several trees were uprooted and electricity supply was disrupted in several places after electric poles too were uprooted.

Harvested paddy was also damaged while being dried at several procurement centers and agricultural fields as the tarpaulin covers to put up to protect the crop from rains were blown away by the strong winds. At several places, the paddy kept for drying was washed away too.
