दिल्‍ली-एनसीआर में हुई झमाझम बारिश के चलत े कई इलाकों में हुआ जलभराव

दिल्‍ली-एनसीआर में हुई झमाझम बारिश के चलते कई इलाकों में भारी जलभराव हो गया है, वहीं बारिश अब भी जारी है। ऐसे में कई जगहों पर जाम लगने की भी खबर है। भारी बारिश के चलते दिल्ली के साथ-साथ एनसीआर के ज्यादातर इलाकों और सड़कों पर पानी लगने के कारण भारी ट्रैफिक जाम हो गया है। इस भीषण ट्रैफिक जाम के चलते सड़कों पर वाहनों की लंबी कतार लग गई। इसके चलते पैदल यात्रियों को भी खासी दिक्कत पेश आ रही है।

वहीं, दूसरी ओर दिल्ली-एनसीआर के कई इलाकों में बारिश से मौसम सुहाना हो गया है। मौसम विभाग का कहना है कि अगले दो दिनों तक लगातार बारिश होगी। इस दौरान अधिकतम तापमान में और कमी आएगी।
