“Monsoon has arrived in Mumbai at this time, regular arrival date is June 10 yearly so it has arrived previous to the typical arrival date,” IMD Mumbai Deputy Director Common Dr Jayanta Sarkar advised ANI.
Heavy rains lashed Mumbai and suburbs inflicting water-logging at a number of locations and disrupting native practice companies.
The Central railway mentioned native practice companies between Kurla and Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus have been halted as a consequence of waterlogging on tracks. “Visitors stopped at 9.50 am, resolution taken as a precautionary measure to keep away from any untoward incident. Visitors will resume as quickly as water recedes,” he mentioned.
In the meantime, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray directed the authorities to make sure that the rainwater is drained out on the earliest and that transport resumes.
