According to preliminary reports, more than 22 000 hectares (55 000 acres) of crops across Telangana have been damaged after recent heavy unseasonable rain and hailstorms hit the state.

The worst affected are paddy and mango crop, government officials said April 22, adding that the damage will likely increase as more rain is expected in the days ahead.

"The exact loss could be more, but our preliminary information says paddy has been damaged in about 30 000 acres, mango in 20 000 acres and other vegetable crops in a few thousand acres,” principal secretary, agriculture, C Parthasarathi told the Times of India.

Senior agriculture officials said the damage was extensive as mango trees were flattened due to the impact of hail and strong gales.

Banana, papaya, sweet lime, green chili, lime, and other horticulture crops were also damaged, the officials said based on initial estimates from affected areas in Peddapalle, Mancherial, Siddipet, Jagtial, Rajanna-Sircilla and other districts.

The storm also inundated roads and caused power outages.
