With Mumbai experiencing continual downpour across the city, a massive amount of waterlogging has been reported at the Sion station on the Central Railway line. Moreover, many roads in Hindmata, Lalbaug, Andheri, Malad, Borivali, Kurla, Matunga have been submerged.

As per reports, the passengers have been experiencing traffic jams due to stagnant water on the roads. In addition, the local trains have been disrupted due to waterlogging on the railway tracks. Long queues of vehicles have been reported on the streets, however, many vehicles are stuck in water which has increased traffic congestion.

The rain which started lashing the streets on Tuesday intensified in the evening. It rained heavily for about 3 hours. As a result, many low-lying areas are flooded.

The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) had earlier issued a yellow alert which means heavy rain at isolated places for Mumbai, Thane and Raigad and an orange alert which translates to heavy to very heavy rain at isolated places for Palghar. The IMD had further warned that the rains could lead to localised flooding and waterlogging in low lying areas.

In view of the situation, Mumbai’s civic body, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), has appealed to non-essential business establishments to remain closed today. Municipal Commissioner Iqbal Singh has also requested people to remain indoors and not venture out unnecessarily.
