Delhi experienced some relief from the scorching heat that had been affecting it the whole month of June as Pre-Monsoon rain splashed on the residents today. The IMD has predicted that Monsoon could arrive in the capital till June 28 2018. It has also stated that the weather conditions are likely to be cloudy with one or two spells of thunderstorms. The rain has brought in freshness, and the Air Quality has also improved a little bit, and gone down to a moderate 110, which is a massive stroke of peace for the city that has been under the influence of toxic smog since months.
However, even as the Capital has been blessed with rains, Mumbai seems to be suffering from the excessive water and the resultant water logging in Santa Cruz area, which received 231mm rain last week, on Sunday. This has also caused delay in working trains, and traffic on the streets as people try to transverse roads that are overflowing with water, and can’t reach their desired destinations because of the disturbances.
Gujarat has also been taken over by heavy downpour, and schools and other education institutions have been closed down to keep the children save from the flooded areas. Four people have been killed due to the floods in the state.
Thank God for the rain in Delhi NCR. Finally!! pic.twitter.com/R3oPBH6ZSO
