Delhi-NCR grappled with chaos today as torrential rainfall since yesterday caused widespread waterlogging and severe traffic jams across the region. The Meteorological Department reported a record-breaking 228 mm rainfall in the last 24 hours, the highest for June since 1936.

Typically, Delhi receives an average of 80.6 mm rain in June, making this downpour unprecedented. While providing relief from scorching heat, the deluge exposed infrastructure weaknesses, despite earlier assurances from Delhi Mayor Shelly Oberoi about monsoon preparedness.

Major intersections like ITO and Hanuman Temple saw up to three feet of water, halting traffic and disrupting daily life. In Noida, despite prior inspections, areas like Mahamaya Flyover and Sector 62 faced severe waterlogging, highlighting ongoing challenges in urban infrastructure management.
