Parts of Gurgaon received 14mm rain on Thursday and strong wind led to outages in several areas.

Owing to western disturbances, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) had predicted rainfall over parts of the national capital region (NCR) on March 9 and 10.

Several areas of Gurgaon received rainfall between 1am and 3am and 3pm and 5 pm on Thursday.

The maximum temperature recorded on Thursday was 27 degrees Celsius and the minimum was 13 degrees Celsius.

IMD officials said they are anticipating over 64mm rainfall across NCR on Friday and the minimum temperature might drop to 10 degree Celsius. However, the sky is likely to clear by Holi on Monday.

The Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam (DHBVN) said though supply from feeders were not disrupted, strong wind led to collision of power lines and electric poles collapsing.

Residents in South City 2, sector 15, 7, 10 and 23 reported outages lasting for up to four hours.

“Strong wind led to overloading at some areas... Upon receiving complaints faults were rectified and power was restored immediately,” Naveen Verma, superintending engineer (operations) of the DHBVN, said.
