United States' Secretary of State John Kerry's scheduled visits to Sisganj Gurudwara, Jama Masjid and Gauri Shankar temple in Delhi were cancelled on Wednesday because of heavy rainfall that brought the Capital to a standstill. Water logging was reported from several parts of the city, including Lodhi road, Vijay Chowk, Sector 4, Ring Road, Dhaula Kuan and Bhairon road, among others, reported ANI.
On Wednesday morning, the Gurugram Police issued advisories on Twitter that read,"Heavy rains in Gurgaon, please be advised. Be patient and maintain lane discipline, we are on the job to facilitate your movement." Private weather forecasting agency Skymet attributed the bouts of rain the the northern region to the axis of the monsoon trough that is currently passing through Agra, south of Delhi.
On August 29, Kerry was among those caught in traffic congestion caused by heavy rainfall in the National Capital Region. The heavy rainfall last week (picture above) left commuters, particularly those in Gurugram, stuck in traffic pile-ups like those they had faced just a month earlier – when people were stuck in jams for as long as six hours in some places on July 28
