NEW DELHI: Heavy rain lashed most parts of the country on Sunday with the southern and central parts bearing the brunt of monsoon fury. The death toll in flash floods and house collapses was over 130.
Torrential rain hit Maharashtra, particularly Mumbai and its neighbouring areas, and Karnataka. There was little respite in Andhra Pradesh and Kerala, where monsoon has been active over the past week.
Thundershowers are expected to hit Delhi and adjoining areas in the next two days. With the temperature and humidity levels rising considerably, the southwest monsoon is expected to arrive in the Capital between June 29 and July 2, according to the Meteorological Department.
