The monsoon, which hit parts of Rajasthan yesterday, further progressed to Delhi, Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh and the entire Punjab-Haryana region, which were all drenched by incessant rains, resulting in water-logging at several places. Over 10 people perished in rain-related incidents across the northern belt.

In Delhi, 57.8 mm rainfall was recorded since last evening and the maximum temperature stood at 32 degree Celsius, four notches below normal, while the minimum was recorded at 25.5 degree Celsius.

In Punjab and Haryana, heavy rains lashed the region, causing mercury to fall sharply and disrupting normal life. The rains turned out to be a boon for farmers in the key agrarian states as they are crucial for kharif crops.

Monsoon rains also lashed Uttarakhand, triggering landslides that blocked highways leading to Uttarkashi and Rudraprayag districts. Landslides triggered by the downpour disrupted traffic along the state highway in Sirmaur district.

The vital Paonta-Shallai-Ronahut route was blocked due to hill slips at many places and number of trucks shipping vegetables were stranded.

Heavy rains continued to lash many parts of Rajasthan as Dabok recorded 65 mm of overnight rains followed by Ajmer, Bharatpur, Sriganganagar, Jaipur, Jodhpur, Churu and Kota.
