The Indian Meteorological Department has predicted heavy to very heavy rainfall in Delhi NCR and heavy rains at isolated places across northern India over the next five days.

Ghaziabad was the worst-affected area with a road in Vasundhara having caved in resulting in a flood-like situation, news agency ANI reported. Waterlogging in parts of Noida, Ghaziabad and Gurgaon has brought traffic movement to a near-halt in these areas,


There is yet no report about the cancellation of flights and trains owing to the rains.
