Local trains in Mumbai on the Central and Harbour Lines are running 20 minutes late this evening, due to heavy rains.
After a day of heavy rains - the heaviest of the season - parts of the city and its immediate outskirts are still receiving heavy rainfall. Water-logging on railway tracks between Kalyan and Vithalwadi on the immediate outskirts of Mumbai meant services on the suburban central railway were disrupted. Many roads in Kalyan too were waterlogged. Parts of South Mumbai too received rainfall this morning. (Twitpic courtesy: @absolutpop)
Yesterday, Mumbai and large parts of Maharashtra experienced incessant torrential rains after a lull of three days, throwing normal life out of gear. Five people were killed in a wall collapse incident in Amravati, officials said.
The Mumbai Traffic Police urged people to stay put and avoid unnecessary travel for the next few hours.
This is the heaviest rainfall Mumbai has received this season. The city recieved 185.3 mm rain in the last 24 hours.
