    Delhi rain: The capital city was deluged by a heavy downpour that lasted for hours from early morning, causing gridlock across the capital city and the national capital region (Noida, Gurgaon, Faridabad). The intensity of the rain was of such intensity that it soon overwhelmed all the storm water drains and at many places the rising water ran into homes and offices with panicked residents seen desperately trying to keep it out. Water-logging was seen in all major roads and crippled traffic movement. Delhi received as much as 3.9 mm of rainfall over the last 24 hours. (Twitter)

    Delhi rain crisis: The heavy rain also made flights tough to operate and with the traffic towards the airport virtually crawling there was a delay in departure of flights, according to an official. In fact, some flights were not even able to land in Delhi and had to be diverted to other cities. One of them was a Qatar Airways flight from Doha to Delhi which was diverted to Jaipur at around 0900 hours. (ANI)

    Delhi rain crisis: However, the rains have abated by 12 noon and water-logged areas were drying up but not quickly enough. In fact, in some areas where the drains were blocked, water could be seen standing still. In some areas the water was waist-high even. From scooters to cars, a number of people were stuck in the middle of the water as their vehicles broke down. (ANI)
