Water-logging has been reported from several places. Civic authorities said that pumps have been pressed into service to clear the water-logging.

The situation in the state capital is particularly grim as knee-deep water can be spotted at major roads and busy markets. Rains have resulted in severe water-logging in several places like ISBT, Shimla bypass trisection and Karanpur.

Major rain-fed rivers and canals in Haldwani of Kumayun region are in spate following the rains and an alert has been sounded in nearby areas.
