Following heavy rain this afternoon, Gurgaon and parts of Delhi are faced with severe water-logging and traffic congestion, according to reports.

The Delhi Traffic Police has reported heavy traffic in areas like Greater Kailash-II, Savitri Cinema, C.R. Park, Moti Bagh, Ramakrishna Ashram Marg, Mandi House, Bhairon Marg, Sarai Kale Khan, Mathura Road, Nangloi, Mundka and Anand Parbat, says The Times of India.

Gurgaon has also seen waterlogging at a number of major intersections, including Hero Honda Chowk, Sohna Road, Manesar, Udyog Vihar, old Gurgaon Road and a few areas in New Gurgaon, Hindustan Times said.

Many of these areas were badly affected by heavy showers on 28 July, causing traffic jams that lasted hours. US Secretary of State John Kerry, who is visiting India, also got stuck on the flooded gridlocked roads from the airport to the city.

Twitter responded with frustration, anxiety and bleak humour at the predicament.
