Heavy rainfall continued to lash Mumbai and Maharashtra’s other districts on Friday, disrupting life and wreaking havoc across the state. The India Meteorological Department issued red and orange alerts for several districts of Mahrashtra on Friday.

As reported by weather department, from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm on Friday, Mumbai recorded 73.62 mm rainfall, whereas, the Eastern Suburbs and Western Suburbs recorded 88.30 mm and 63.29 mm rainfall respectively.

Severe waterlogging issues were reported across Mumbai as extreme downpour continued in the city, causing heavy traffic congestion.

Incessant rainfall also led to disruption of local train service in the city. Mumbai has been experiencing heavy rainfall for a few days, and the intensity has increased over the past 2-3 days. As a result, more than 100 local trains have been cancelled.

Harbour line local train services, running between Mumbai and Navi Mumbai, were hit on Friday after waterlogging was reported in Kurla. The Central Railways said on Friday evening that while all section trains were running, the Harbour line, which runs from Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT) to Panvel/Goregaon, was running 10-15 min late.
