Historic low temperatures sweep North India, a month's worth of rain in a day hits Delhi

Heavy rains, snow, and persisting cold wave have been creating difficult conditions for people in northwestern India-- in Delhi, heavy rains surpassed its monthly average for January of 21.7 mm (0.8 inches) when Safdarjung observatory recorded more than 25.1 mm (0.9 inches) into Sunday, January 3, 2021. The city also recorded its lowest temperature in 15 years when the mercury dropped to 1.1 °C (34 °F) on January 1, while Hisar had its coldest in 47 years with a minimum temperature of -1.2 °C (29.8 °F) on December 31, 2020.

Extreme weather conditions in northwest India have left many people struggling to survive, especially with some night shelters functioning without electricity.

On Safradjung Road, around 20 families have been living in a shelter, waiting for treatment for various diseases.

"From the beginning of the winter season, we have been facing electricity problems. We are using solar lights to avoid this problem," Shelter in charge Vedpal told ANI.

"It is even more difficult in rainy seasons like yesterday. For now, people are charging their phones outside the night shelter."
