Heavy rains pound Mumbai


After a brief break, heavy rains lashed Mumbai on Tuesday night but no untoward incident was reported so far, a senior civic official said.

Thundershowers and lightning also struck the megapolis.

An official from the India Meteorological Department (IMD) said that from 8.30 am Tuesday to 8.30 am Wednesday, the Colaba observatory recorded 56.8 mm rain while the Santacruz observatory recorded 103.2 mm rain.

According to the civic official, following the downpour, few low lying areas witnessed minor water-logging, but the vehicular traffic was not affected.

He also said the suburbans trains on all the three lines – Central, Western and Harbour — were running late by five to ten minutes and the civic-run BEST buses were plying as per schedule.
