Heavy rains lashed the national capital and its adjoining areas in the wee hours of Monday, 18 October, leaving many areas inundated. The downpour, which hampered traffic movement in Delhi, had begun on Sunday evening.

The capital city would continue to witness moderate intensity rain, the Indian Meteorological Department had predicted early morning on Monday.

"Thunderstorm with moderate intensity rain with heavy intensity rain over isolated places would continue to occur over and adjoining areas of Entire Delhi, Gurugram, Gohana, Ganaur, Hodal, Aurangabad, Palwal, Faridabad, Ballabhgarh, Panipat, Sohana... during the next 2 hours," the IMD said in a tweet at 6:40 am.
