Heavy rainfall yet again brought several parts of Delhi and Gurugram to a standstill on 31 August. Intense water-logging left roads leading to the Millennium City submerged, and choked up traffic in various parts of Delhi.

In the wake of the chaotic situation in Gurugram, the Gurgaon police took to Twitter and requested commuters to be patient.

Flights - including those of Air India and Indigo airlines - are expected to be delayed.

Severe Waterlogging has been reported at Aurobindo Marg, Bharthal Chowk on Dwarka Link Road, Wazirabad Road, Apsara roundabout, Mandoli and Rajokri flyover.

Honda chowk on NH8, Rajeev Chowk in Gurugram and NH 24 are reportedly at the centre of the traffic storm.

Hundreds of commuters have been stuck in traffic that has shown no signs of clearing out since a while now. The highway is reportedly submerged, with water levels rising to over four feet in certain areas. Massive waterlogging was also reported in Sarogini Nagar area of Delhi.

US Secretary of State John Kerry's visit to religious sites in Delhi has also reportedly been cancelled due to heavy rain.
