Mumbai Rain Highlights: Local Train Services On Western, Central Lines Resume

Mumbai local trains were cancelled earlier today by Western and Central Railways citing "nature's fury".

New Delhi/Mumbai: 

Heavy, incessant rain has paralysed Mumbai and left at least 19 dead in the city and its neighourhood. Since yesterday, Mumbai has received the heaviest rain in a decade. The weather office has warned of more rain in Mumbai, Palghar, Thane and Raigad in the next few hours.

Local trains in Mumbai, which were cancelled by the Western and Central Railways citing "nature's fury", have resumed services. Over a dozen people were killed as a wall crashed in Malad around 2 am; efforts to save a 12-year-old girl trapped under debris ended in tragedy as rescue team pulled out her body after a 14-hour operation.

Pictures from Nalasopara showed the railway station waterlogged. Flights have been diverted as the main runway of the Mumbai airport was blocked by a stranded plane. The runway is likely to functional by Thursday, officials said.

The Meteorological Department warned of "extremely heavy" rainfall in adjoining areas of Thane and Palghar on July 2, 4 and 5. Private weather agency Skymet said Mumbai is at "serious risk of flooding" between July 3 and 5. "Close to 200 mm or more rain per day is likely during this period, which could hamper normal life," it said.

Here are the Highlights on the Mumbai rains:

Mumbai Live: Girl Trapped In Mumbai's Malad
A 10-year-old girl is trapped under debris after a compound wall collapsed on a house in Mumbai's Malad East after heavy overnight rainfall. The young girl has been identified as Sanchita Jadhav and has been able to communicate with officials working to rescue her. She asked them for water to drink.
