Meanwhile, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has asked the civic body to stay on high alert in the view of weather as the current spell of rains are said to continue on Thursday which is to further deepen the problems of waterlogging and other disruptions to routine life in the city.

Mumbai has been left ravaged by the heavy rainfall which has disrupted rail and road traffic and power supply apart from uprooting of trees and water-logging in the city for the past two days. South Mumbai was badly hit due to water-logging on roads. Moreover, the slum clusters which are usually found in the low-lying areas were consequently flooded due to the downpour. Several trees have also fallen due to gusty winds, damaging vehicles which were left abandoned on the roads.

The BMC had earlier stated that the city of Mumbai received the highest rainfall of the season within 12 hours of continual rain on Wednesday besides the highest-ever wind speed. According to the civic body, Mumbai recorded 215.8 mm rain, followed by 101.9 mm in eastern suburbs and 76.03 mm in western suburbs. The 'D' civic ward, that includes areas like Malabar Hill and Peddar Road, received 309 mm rainfall, while the maximum wind speed of 101.4 kmph was recorded at Marine drive around 4.15 pm, the BMC added.

In order to provide shelter to the battered people of Mumbai, the BMC also opened temporary shelters for stranded passengers. Meanwhile, several roads like Mahapalika Marg and Colaba Causeway Road in south Mumbai were blocked and closed for traffic after trees collapsed due to high-velocity winds.
