The financial capital of India is witnessing unprecedented torrential rain in a short period of time. Three people, including two minors, were killed in two separate house collapse incidents.
The India Meteorological Department has warned of heavy showers today. Meanwhile, The State Disaster Management Authority has said rains in the megapolis, which came to a standstill following incessant downpour, are likely to be lesser today. The incessant rainfall has affected train schedules, flight and road traffic severely. The maximum city yesterday saw a whopping 298 mm of rainfall, the highest in a day in August since 1997. This was second only to 346.2 mm of rainfall registered on August 23 in 1997, as per reports. According to the IMD, the well-marked low-pressure area over the Mumbai region is likely to be upgraded to ‘depression’, which would mean more rains. ( Credits: Financial Express.)
