Andhra Pradesh is currently experiencing record rainfall which has led to the deaths of more than 30 people. Tirupati is one of the worst hit areas of the region. Amidst this, a video is being shared online showing cows drowning in the flood and is being shared widely. 

Each version of the video has over 1,000 views on Twitter alone. 

Fact-Check:

Upon reverse searching the key frames of the video, we found that a number of news channels had reports on this incident already. According to a report from the Mexican daily La Jornada, the flood took place due to a meteorological phenomenon called ‘Hanna’ in July 2020 affecting areas such as San Blas and Compostela. The same video is posted along with the article.

Since the video is from Mexico and is a year old, this claim is false
