Moderate to heavy rains lashed parts of the national Capital early Wednesday morning, leaving roads with knee-deep water and the traffic crawling.

India Meteorological Department (IMD) recordings show that till 8.30am, the Safdarjung weather station had received 3.6mm rainfall, while at Palam, it was 1.3mm. IMD officials said rainfall intensified after that, especially around the airport. The latest rainfall recording is yet to be updated.

“Light to moderate showers are expected to continue through the day. On Thursday, the intensity will decrease, before it picks up again from Friday,” a senior IMD official said.

The heavy showers led to long traffic snarls, vehicle breakdowns and road cave-ins. On Wednesday, Delhi Traffic Police officials said a portion of the Shahjahan road, near Jamnagar House, from Q-point towards C-Hexagon caved in because of continuous showers. The portion of the road was cordoned off and traffic was moving on a single lane.

Complaints of bus breakdowns were also reported from parts of Newada, Ashok Nagar and Dhaula Kuan, which also resulted in slow traffic movement in those areas.
