The National Capital Region has been witnessing incessant rainfall since Monday, submerging low-lying areas in knee-deep water and affecting traffic movement in parts of the city.
On Tuesday, Delhi gauged 84 mm rainfall in just six hours — between 8:30 am and 2:30 pm — that flooded roads and led to massive traffic snarls on key stretches such as ITO, Ring Road near IP Estate flyover, Dhaula Kuan, and Rohtak road.
“Thunderstorm with light to moderate intensity rain would occur over and adjoining areas of isolated places of East, Southeast, Northeast, North, Delhi, Sohana, Nuh, Aurangabad, Hodal, Manesar(Haryana) Noida, Greater Noida…,” the India Meteorological Department (IMD) had issued an alert early morning today.
