Heavy rains lashed parts of Delhi on Wednesday inundating many areas and causing traffic snarls. The India Meteorological Centre said the rains covered most parts of Delhi and the adjoining areas of Haryana and Uttar Pradesh.
The traffic department has been giving out alerts on traffic movement and waterlogging on busy roads through its social media handles.
Residents shared pictures and videos of rainwater gushing into their houses and vehicles wading through waterlogged areas. While some enjoyed the deluge from their balconies, others were aghast over the flooding of roads with just few hours of rain.
Take a look at some of the tweets:
