New Delhi Airport Roof Collapses Due to Heavy Rains, Causes Traffic Chaos in India Floods

Heavy rainfall and strong winds wreaked havoc at New Delhi’s main airport on Friday, leading to a tragic incident that claimed the life of one individual and caused chaos for travelers. The roof collapse at the airport, caused by the severe weather conditions, prompted authorities to close off part of the terminal building for inspection to prevent any further accidents.

With New Delhi receiving a staggering 228.1 mm of rainfall in just 24 hours, according to the India Meteorological Department (IMD), the entire city was plunged into disarray. Flights were disrupted, metro stations were closed, underpasses were blocked, and roads were jammed with traffic as residents and commuters struggled to navigate the waterlogged streets.

One local resident, Amir Ansari, shared his frustrations as he found himself stuck in a gridlocked traffic jam for hours, turning what is usually a 45-minute commute into nearly two hours of misery. The city’s relief from the scorching heat quickly turned into a nightmare as the effects of the heavy downpour and strong winds made their mark on New Delhi.

As authorities work to assess the damage and restore order to the chaos that has unfolded, the incident at the New Delhi airport serves as a stark reminder of the unpredictable and destructive nature of mother nature. Residents and travelers alike are left grappling with the aftermath of the severe weather, hoping for a swift recovery and a return to normalcy in the bustling city of New Delhi.
