Mumbai Rains Updates: Water-logging on rail tracks disrupted the suburban train services to some extent.

New Delhi: 

Heavy rains continued to hit Mumbai and adjoining suburbs today, leading to water-logging in several areas. Water-logging on railway tracks disrupted the suburban train services to some extent, as locals were running behind schedule by around 15 minutes, news agency Press Trust of India said, as suburban trains are running with "cautious speed". Flight operations at the Mumbai airport, however, were not impacted due to rains, an airport official said.
