Rainfall has been consistent in the Delhi-NCR region for the past few days. While it has helped in bringing the temperature down, the city infrastructure hasn't been kind to commuters.

On Thursday, after a heavy downpour, Gurugram traffic on National Highway 8 came to a dead-bumper-to-bumper-halt. Since NH8 was cut off, traffic moving towards Maharashtra and Jaipur was stalled especially on the Delhi-Jaipur stretch.

On Friday, around midnight, the water level rose to knee length, leaving commuters in their vehicles stranded.

Naturally, people weren't happy with the situation and took to social media, posting pictures of the waterlogged roads and traffic jams.

The Gurugram police took to social media warning commuters of impending doom.

"29-Jul People coming to Gurgaon from Delhi are advised to stay back today to avoid being stuck in Traffic Jams due to flooding on roads," Gurgaon Police tweeted.

And for those who weren't stuck in the traffic jam (obviously) couldn't stop cracking jokes.
