The DMRC also said service between Inderprashtha and Karol Bagh (on the Blue line) were not available from 5.15 pm due to a tree falling on the overhead electricity (OHE) wires of the up section of the line (towards Dwarka) between Rajiv Chowk and RK Ashram.

The dust storm also swept parts of southern Andhra Pradesh state.

The much-needed reprieve came after a sweltering day, when the maximum temperature had reached 40.60 degrees Celsius, a notch above the normal. Two were killed and three injured in Kadapa distict, sources said.

One clocking 109 kmph hit the Safdarjung area at 4:44 pm and continued till 4:46 pm. The other gusting to 96 kmph battered the Palam area at 4.33 pm.

The farmers were trying to place covers on the paddy kept in the field after cutting but did not succeed due to strong winds and rains.

"Thunderstorms will also hit the South, but they won't be as strong", said M Mohapatra, head of services, IMD. Traffic was affected due to uprooting of around 70 trees, and about 25 trees which have fallen on roads are yet to be removed, the traffic police said. The dust storm interrupted a programme that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was to attend at IP Extension.
