The Central line, which includes major stations like Byculla, Dadar and Thane, was closed by 9 am because water had accumulated on several tracks. Trains on the Western line, used by about 30 lakh people everyday, were running 10 minutes late. Flights at 11 am were delayed on an average by about 20 minutes.
