Earlier June 22, the national capital woke up to pleasant weather after receiving light rainfall.
Earlier on Wednesday, several parts of Gurugram witnessed waterlogging following heavy rainfall on Wednesday morning.
The water especially clogged the expressway after the rains, causing a traffic jam for up to 5 kilometers. People were highly inconvenienced as massive delays were caused, and public transport was also hindered. A bus full of passengers was stuck in the waterlogged conditions for more than an hour and could do nothing but wait.
