Heavy rains lash Mumbai; disrupt rail, road traffic

Mumbai: Heavy overnight rains lashed Mumbai and adjoining areas causing water logging in several low-lying areas here, resulting in slow movement of peak hour rail and vehicular traffic this morning.

Many spots across the metropolis including Hindmata area in suburban Dadar, Sion, Matunga, and some parts in Andheri were waterlogged due to the incessant showers leading to traffic snarls and chaos on the roads.

"Civic body's preparatory forces are in place to tackle any eventualities. There has been no significant water-logging and our machinery is keeping a close eye on the developments," he told PTI.

Also, to ease road traffic, BEST authorities have diverted buses on certain routes, Naik said.

According to IMD, Mumbai and Konkan regions of Maharashtra experienced heavy showers in the past 24 hours as South West monsoon intensified in the state.

However, Central Maharashtra is still awaiting rains.

The weather department has forecast heavy rains over the next 24 hours in Konkan and Mumbai regions.

The Colaba observatory today recorded 66.8 mm rainfall while the one at Santacruz recorded 39 mm rains ( till 8.30 AM), a IMD official said.
