Snapshot: Heavy rains cause waterlogging at IGI airport

New Delhi: Incessant heavy rains on Sunday led to waterlogging at IGI airport in New Delhi, causing inconvenience to passengers who waded through knee deep water while the baggage handling system was left crippled.

The monsoon arrived in Delhi on Sunday a fortnight ahead of schedule, with national capital recording around 36.6 mm rainfall. But the airport witnessed an "unprecedented" rainfall of 117.8 mm in four and half hours, between 1 PM and 5.30 PM.
