Rain in Delhi brings relief from hazardous air quality
New Delhi, Nov 10 (PTI) Intermittent rain led to a rapid improvement in Delhi’s air quality on Friday and cleared the suffocating haze that had been lingering for more than 10 days.
At 1 pm, Delhi’s AQI stood at 314 which falls in the “very poor” category. It was 376 at 9 am and 408 at 7 am on Friday. The AQI stood at 460 at 11 pm on Thursday.
