New Delhi: A layer of dense fog was witnessed over the Delhi-NCR region on Tuesday morning, as the temperature dropped to almost 7 degrees in the national capital, according to the India Meteorological Department.

Morning visuals from Delhi's India Gate, Sarai Kale Khan, AIIMS, Safdarjung, and Anand Vihar areas showed them engulfed in dense fog with low visibility.

Residents sought refuge in night shelters across various parts of the national capital as the cold wave intensified on the intervening night of Tuesday.

The IMD today morning released satellite images showing a layer of fog spreading over Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh.

Visuals from UP's Moradabad, Kanpur showed a thick layer of fog bringing down visibility to almost zero.

"It is difficult to see the road due to the fog. There are no rides till now unlike usual. It is risky to ride at this time because of low visibility and it is colder than usual," a rickshaw driver from Moradabad said.

A night security guard in the area said that it is more difficult to work at night because of the cold and fog.
