The same video has also been uploaded by other YouTube channels. "Heavy rain in village, #kadapa #Tirupatirain #Tirumala, Andhra Pradesh floods," reads the title.



We found a video and an article dated back to November 2021.

"The Annamayya project on Cheyyeru river has turned out to be the sorrow of many a village in Rajampet Assembly constituency in Kadapa district of Andhra Pradesh," read The Indian Express report.


However, even though Bhadrachalam is experiencing heavy rains in July 2022, the viral video is not related to Bhadrachalam.



Hence, the claim is false.
