New Delhi: Life was hit hard in the Indian capital on Saturday as heavy rains lashing since early Saturday flooded several roads, causing umpteen traffic jams, residents and motorists said.

Road traffic was the worst affected due to the rains, which the weatherman said would continue during the day.

The Delhi Traffic Police reported numerous jams all over the city after choked drains -- blamed partly on Commonwealth Games construction work -- flooded roads.
At many traffic junctions, harried traffic policemen drenched in rain guided motorists struggling to wade through slushy water.

It was the third consecutive day of monsoon rains in Delhi, where the Yamuna is flowing almost above the danger mark, posing danger to low-lying localities.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) said the city got 31.7 mm of rainfall from Friday morning till 8.30 am on Saturday.

The capital has received a total 617 mm of rainfall this monsoon.
