Rain and thundershowers also affected road and air traffic during the rush hours and brought down houses and trees at some places. Power disruptions was reported in several parts.

Flight operations at Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport were also affected in the morning due to the weather conditions.
