Rains lash Delhi, part of roof falls at airport

Aug 21, 2009 06:22 PM IST India India

New Delhi: A part of the roof at Delhi airport’s new domestic terminal collapsed in heavy rains on Friday evening.

Flight operations resumed after being suspended for an hour on
Friday evening following torrential rains that also damaged a portion of the new domestic terminal building, airport officials said. "The sudden downpour required us to first divert all incoming flights," said an official at the Air Traffic Control. "We also advised all airlines to hold outgoing flights till the conditions improve."

An official at the airport confirmed that most incoming flights were diverted, while operations were stalled for outbound operations.

"In this downpour, a small portion of the roof above Terminal 1D caved in," the official said, adding that the damage was not significant.

"No one was injured in the incident."

Heavy rains lashed the city and adjoining regions around 1430 hrs IST and within an hour there was disorder on the streets with reports of waterlogging and resultant traffic snarls on several arterial roads.
