On Thursday, flooding and traffic delays were caused by heavy rains that caused waterlogging in several areas of Delhi and the NCR and overflowed portions of NH 48 in Gurgaon.
The India Meteorological Department has issued a “yellow alert” for Friday due to the forecast moderate rainfall on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. When there is a yellow alert, it means that there will likely be moderate to heavy downpours.
The Delhi Fire Service said that a fire started this morning in a shoe business in the Narela Industrial area. Calls about the fire that had started at the MSC mall had begun to arrive about 8:34 a.m. DFS personnel are extending hoses inside the blazing structure as it is obscured by dense smoke in images from the scene.
Ten fire trucks were dispatched to the scene, according to the DFS, and no injuries or fatalities have been reported as of yet. Atul Garg, the head of DFS, said that the fire had been put out.
It is challenging to move around because of the close quarters, yet it is not as bad as Old Delhi. Additionally, there is not much water supply in the area.
The Gautam Buddh Nagar district government said on Thursday that due to the severe rain, classes I through VIII would be cancelled on Friday. All private educational institutes in Gurgaon, meanwhile, have been instructed to remain closed. Gurgaon took the brunt of water logging in the Delhi-NCR region even though no advice was issued.
The NH 48 was flooded in several places, notably in the low-lying areas.
