Severe Storm Brings Delhi to a 'Standstill'

The worst storm to hit Delhi in several years brought winds of up to 100 km/h (62 mph) to the Indian capital region on May 30, with NDTV reporting at least two deaths and hundreds of emergency callouts.

A 50-year-old man was killed after a balcony partially collapsed due to the strong gusts, and a 65-year-old homeless man died after a tree fell on him, according to NDTV.

Delhi Police tweeted that the storm brought the city to a “standstill,” with officers deployed to clear roads and regulate traffic.
