Several residents took to Twitter to share pictures of their harrowing experience due to the waterlogging:

In many areas like Sector 15, water even entered the ground floor of the houses forcing residents to move their belongings to safer spots. Heavy rains have led to electric poles falling off resulting in power cuts.
