Heavy rains disrupt daily life in Mumbai

Updated : 2019-07-24 13:27:28

After a week's lull, the monsoon revived with full force in Mumbai, coastal Konkan and other parts of Maharashtra, disrupting normal life. Heavy rain continued to lash Mumbai since 1 AM and the city woke up to water-logging in many low-lying areas, flooded railway tracks and huge traffic snarls. The India Meteorological Department on Tuesday issued a heavy rainfall warning for Mumbai stating that a cyclonic circulation would bring more showers to the city in the next two days.
