Heavy rains since Friday morning flooded many parts of Mumbai, disrupting rail and road traffic as well as flights, officials said.
The downpour led to waterlogging in parts of south and central Mumbai as well as eastern and western suburbs, leading to major traffic snarls in the morning peak hour.
Traffic crawled at a snail’s pace on major thoroughfares like Eastern Express and Western Express highways and major north-south roads, delaying tens of thousands. Suburban train services on Western Railway, Central Railway and Harbour Line ran 15-30 minutes late.
IMD has forecast very heavy rains over Mumbai and coastal Konkan region over the next 48 hours.
