Heavy rains continued to lash the national capital region for a second consecutive day on Thursday, leading to severe waterlogging in several areas. Traffic movement on key roads across the region was affected by the rainfall.
Visuals from Gurgaon on Friday morning showed commuters wading through knee-deep waterlogged roads. Watch here:
A traffic police advisory on Thursday asked people to only step out of their houses only when it is absolutely necessary. "Due to continuous heavy rainfall in Gurugram, there is waterlogging at some places and the traffic is moving at a slow speed. Therefore, we request all of you that you should come out of the house only when necessary," said the advisory.
The Gurugram administration also ordered all corporate offices to work from home on Friday amid heavy rain. All private educational institutions are also advised to close schools and colleges.
