On Thursday, June 10, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) issued an orange alert for the city of Mumbai for the next three days.

Moreover, along with Mumbai, the neighbouring areas of Thane, Palghar and Raigad districts will receive heavy to very heavy rainfall. In addition, in view of the forecast by IMD, the NDRF has deployed 15 teams across Maharashtra.

On Wednesday, June 9, the monsoons lashed Mumbai ahead of its usual arrival date, causing severe waterlogging and suspension of trains services in the metropolis. Due to the incessant downpour, the city witnessed severe waterlogging in many areas. Moreover, local train services were also hit owing to heavy rain.

Furthermore, the Central Railway authorities informed that local trains between Kurla and Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT) were halted as the water was flowing over tracks between Kurla and Sion stations. In addition, the services on the Harbour line were affected between Vashi and CSMT near the Chunabhatti railway station.

On the other hand, amidst the rainfall, a building collapsed in a slum in the Malvani area of Malad West, Mumbai, at 11.10 pm on Wednesday night, June 9. The incident, which occurred at the New Collector compound slum on Abdul Hamid road in Malvani gate no 8, took away the lives of 11 people. Out of these 11, eight were children. As per the preliminary report, it was a G+2 building that fell on another building. At least seven others, who were seriously injured, have been admitted at BDBA Municipal General Hospital.
