Life Disrupts In Mumbai As Heavy Rains Lash The City

As heavy rains continue to lash Mumbai and other parts of Maharashtra, several low-lying areas of Mumbai were flooded.

The flooded roads also disrupted road traffic. The services of Mumbai local trains were suspended on several routes and many trains were delayed due to heavy rains and flooded.

 The southwest monsoon has set over Mumbai and neighboring areas, as the India Meteorological Department (IMD) issued a red alert for Mumbai on Wednesday and an orange alert for the next 4 days.

According to data from the Santacruz observatory, Mumbai recorded 220.6 mm rain from between 8.30 am and 5.30 pm on Wednesday.

The Central Railway, however, later took to Twitter to update passengers that Mumbai local trains would be running on all routes on Thursday (June 10). The Central Railway CPRO said Railways have kept all machinery on alert mode and is keeping a close eye on the situation.

Fifteen teams of the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) have been positioned in various parts of Maharashtra keeping in mind the heavy rains.

Four teams have been based in Ratnagiri, two each in Mumbai, Sindhudurg, Palghar, Raigad, Thane and one in Kurla (east Mumbai suburb), NDRF Director General S N Pradhan said in a tweet.
