Delhites wake up to heavy downpour; major waterlogging reported from across NCR

In what is arguably the strongest rainfall seen by the national capital in years, Delhites woke up on Sunday to massive downpour and sounds of thunder. Reports of heavy rainfall have emerged not only from all parts of Delhi but also from other parts of NCR like Noida and Gurugram. While those sitting at home might get to enjoy a breathtaking morning, things were not quite as smooth for those commuting. 

Waterlogging has been reported from several areas in Delhi. From Naraina Vihar, Rajouri Garden in West Delhi to Moolchand in South Delhi, heavy rain caused waterlogging at many places. 

On the busy Ring Road of Delhi, traffic slowed down due to rainfall and commuters who were traveling via two-wheelers were seen waiting under flyovers and other sheds, while those traveling by cars were having to watch out for puddles of water underneath. 

IMD has predicted more thunderstorms in several areas of north India. "Thunderstorm with rain would occur over and adjoining areas of Hissar, Jind, Gohana, Gannaur, Panipat, Rohtak, Bhiwani, Jhajjar, Sonipat, Bagpat, Gurugram, Noida, Bulandsahar, Pilani, Ghaziabad, Faridabad and many places of Delhi," IMD tweeted.
