Dense smog conditions have wreaked havoc over the national capital for quite some time now. So much so that a state of health emergency had been declared over the city. Schools remained closed and residents were advised to stay in for as long as they can.
However, smoggy conditions which were prevailing over Delhi and the NCR region have reduced to quite an extent. The change in these conditions have occurred due to the increased wind speed. Presently, humid southeasterly winds are blowing over Dehi-NCR. The speed of these winds is between 10-15 kmph during the afternoon hours.
