Heavy rainfall in Mumbai over the past five days has affected the city's sub-urban rail network (Mumbai local train) on the Central Railways' Harbour and Main lines. Mumbai and the surrounding areas of Thane witnessed very heavy rainfall overnight, impacting the Mumbai's local rail network. The Central Railways - an arm of the Indian Railways - said in a series of tweets on Tuesday, "Harbour line trains are going up to Bandra only and not up to Goregaon as announced earlier." Meanwhile, the weather office in Mumbai has warned that very intense spells of rain are likely to continue in the districts of Mumbai, Palghar, Thane and Raigad in the next few hours.
