Earlier on Wednesday, moderate to heavy rain and gusty winds pummelled the national capital and paralysed road traffic in the city. It also forced the diversion of at least seven flights.

Strong winds uprooted trees and snapped power and internet cables in several areas, throwing parts of Delhi into chaos. The showers, however, provided a much-needed respite from the heat.
