Some roads and areas where waterlogging were seen included Dhaula Kuan, Mathura Road, Moti Bagh, Vikas Marg, Ring Road, Rohtak Road, Sangam Vihar, Kirari and near Pragati Maidan, among others. The Public Works Department (PWD) officials declared waterlogging complaints were being dealt with priority.
