Heavy rains occurred across north India on Saturday claiming three more lives in Uttar Pradesh where flood-like situation prevailed in many districts with major rivers rising further while a downpour in Delhi resulted in water logging and traffic snarls at many places.

A 28-year-old woman and her two minor children died in UP's Etah district this morning when the roof of their house collapsed over them due to incessant rains, official sources said.

These deaths have taken the number of people killed in rain-related incidents in the state to 76, they said.

Heavy showers disrupted normal life in several parts of Himachal Pradesh triggering landslides and uprooting trees, which led to disruption of power supply and telecommunication links at places.

Heavy rains lashed the national capital resulting in traffic snarls in many areas due to water logging including the BRT corridor, Sheikh Sarai, Chirag Delhi, Anzal Plaza, Siri Fort, Mehrauli, Lajpat Nagar, Raja Garden, Ashram and Mongolpuri among other localities.

The rains also uprooted trees in many areas of the national capital.
