Mumbai: Heavy rains continue to lash Mumbai and its neighbouring districts, disrupting normal life amid numerous incidents of water-logging across low-lying areas and railway stations.

While extreme water logging was reported from Dadar, Girgaon, Mahim, Byculla and Andheri, rail services continue to remain partially suspended, inconveniencing essential services workers.

Meanwhile, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has taken stock of the situation and advised the city’s civic chief to address issues of waterlogging and uprooting of trees on urgent basis. He has urged police personnel, NDRF, rail and health services employees to cooperate with the civic administration in dealing with this situation. Prime Minister Narendra Modi assures all possible help to the Maharashtra government and people.
