Mumbai paralysed by Heavy Rains

A heavy monsoon downpour flooded streets and disrupted transport in Mumbai on Tuesday morning, with city officials advising citizens to stay indoors. According to meteorological department officials, Mumbai has received around 395 mm of rain since morning, submerging several parts of the city. “The incessant rain has flooded many low-lying areas in Matunga, Sion, Worli, Lower Parel in central Mumbai, Chembur and Wadala in the eastern suburbs and Bandra, Andheri and Borivali in the western suburbs,” an official at the Mumbai disaster management cell said.

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has urged people to stay indoors till 5 p.m. as a high tide of about four metres is expected this afternoon. Fishermen have also been asked not to venture out to sea. According to the disaster management cell of the local civic body, high tide will be at 1100 hrs while low tide will be at 1600 hrs, which is expected to create more problems as flood waters are unlikely to recede fast. Only then the flood gates will be opened to allow rain water to drain.
