After incessant rains caused flooding in Gurugram and neighbouring Delhi and Uttar Pradesh, schools have been shut in many parts and offices asked to work from home.

13 people have been killed in wall collapses and lightning strikes and scores injured as normal life gets heavily affected in parts of UP.

Videos and photographs on social media have captured the severe waterlogging as roads were deluged by heavy rains that have rocked north India.

Traffic snarls became a common sight in Haryana’s Gurugram, where tech companies are aplenty.

Although the rain brought much needed respite from the heat in humidity in Delhi-NCR, the waterlogging forced people to waddle through knee-deep and in some places, waist deep water.
