Delhi faces power cuts amid rains, gusty winds | Latest News Delhi

Delhi:

The India Meteorological Department said thunderstorms were expected to continue in the city accompanied by gusty winds with a speed of 60-90 kilometre per hour

New Delhi: The heavy rain and gusty winds uprooted trees and led to water logging in Delhi on Monday and triggered power cuts across the city.

“There is no shortage of power in Delhi. Whatever outages have happened or are happening is due to local factors. At some places, power was snapped because of the falling of trees. In a few areas like some unauthorised colonies that are densely populated …power supply [was discontinued] due to water logging as a precautionary measure,” said an official, requesting anonymity. The official added they have to be extra careful to prevent electrocution or any untoward incidents during rains.
