The claim that the viral video belongs to Hyderabad floods is FALSE.
When searched on the internet using the keyframes, we found that though this video was is from Warangal. It was shot in August 2020.
We found several Youtube videos posted by local media outlets stating that ‘Fishes Inside House Due To Floods In Warangal.
Hence, the viral video is not related to Hyderabad rains and floods. This is a video of the August Warangal floods. So, the claim is FALSE.
