Delhi News Live Updates: In a much-needed respite from the soaring heat, the national capital witnessed thunderstorm and lightning on Monday. According to the India Meteorological Department (IMD), the surface temperature in the national capital fell 11 degrees, from 29 degree Celsius to 18 degree Celsius on Monday in the period between 5.40 am to 7 am.

However, the weather disrupted flight schedules, the Delhi International Airport Ltd tweeted.  The rains also led to traffic snarls in several parts of Delhi, while the power supply is likely to be affected as well in some areas. News agency ANI has also reported the uprooting of trees in some parts. The IMD has warned of reduced visibility and damage to kucha houses due to the strong winds and rain. It also suggested unplugging electrical appliances and getting out of water bodies.

In other news, water supply was hit in parts of Delhi. On Saturday, the Delhi Jal Board said that due to the depletion of pond level at Wazirabad, “the clear water production has been affected from water treatment plants at Haiderpur phase-I, phase-II, and Bawana.” North Delhi, Northwest Delhi, West Delhi, and parts of South Delhi are likely to be affected till the situation improves.
