This is the second such storm to hit the national capital in the past four days. Over 50 people were killed in the last storm that had hit north India three days back, including two in Delhi.
The weather office had earlier estimated the wind speeds could touch around 74 km per hour. In a warning issued earlier, it had forecast loud peals of thunder with frequent lightning flashes, moderate to heavy spell of rain.
Meanwhile, power distribution company in the national capital, BSES, said that teams have been put on high-alert and are trying to restore disruptions in affected areas. "The restoration may take longer than usual as safety is of paramount importance," it said.
