Delhi has received 164 mm of rain so far in July. The city receives an average of 209.7 mm of rainfall throughout the month. Due to the heavy rains, many parks, underpasses, markets and even hospital premises in the city were waterlogged and roads were heavily jammed. Pictures and videos of people wading through knee-deep water on the streets have gone viral on social media, raising many questions about the city’s drainage system.
Looking at the monsoon situation, the India Meteorological Department has said in its forecast that there is a possibility of light to moderate rains in Delhi and surrounding areas for the next five days. At the moment, the possibilities of rain cannot be ruled out. He said that due to rain, the minimum and maximum temperature will also remain normal. That is, the people of Delhi should not expect relief from the rain.
