New Delhi: Heavy rainfall caused waterlogging on several roads, colonies and highways in Delhi-NCR on Saturday morning. Pedestrians had to wade through the waterlogged streets. Several crucial underpasses were closed due to waterlogging by the Delhi Traffic Police.
Commuters also faced difficulties while going to work as waterlogging resulted in traffic jams. Some colonies were inundated with knee-deep water. Public Works Department (PWD) officials said the field staff was on the ground to address waterlogging complaints on priority.
India Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued an orange alert in the capital. “Delhi has been declared under orange alert following heavy and continuous rain which caused several inundations,” said IMD.
