New Delhi, Jun 28: With the monsoon arriving at the capital state three days in advance, Delhiites seem to be enjoying the welcome showers. But the commercial capital of Mumbai is still waiting for the rain gods to shower their kindness on the parched Mumbaikars.

Delhi has been witnessing incessant rains for the third consecutive day with many cases of water logging, drain overflowing and instances of tree falling reported in various parts of the state. A total of 87 complaints were received by the Municipal Corporation of Delhi's (MCD) control rooms. Most of them on fallen tress obstructing traffic in areas like Sarita Vihar, Kalkaji and Narayana Vihar.

Cases of flooding was reported in Inderpuri, Najafgarh, Narela, Rohini, Malviya Nagar, Madan Gir, Ber Sarai, Rajouri Garden, Vikas Puri, Janakpuri and Punjabi Bagh. Traffic was impacted due to the water logging in certain parts of the state including Okhla, ITO, Janakpuri, Laxmi Nagar and R K Puram.

The city has received a total of 2.6 mm of rains in the last 24 hours with the Met department forecasting continued showers for the next couple of days.

The rains continue to wreak havoc in spite of concerted efforts from officials with senior Municipal Corporation of Delhi officers claiming that additional teams of officers and sanitation workers have been employed to deal specifically with monsoon related eventualities.
