A large part of the financial capital and the metropolitan region of Mumbai (MMR) continue to suffer from heavy rainfalls for the fourth straight day.
Nine people have been killed earlier on Monday, five of which were single-family people, and have taken toll from 33 over the last two days to 42.
During other casualties, a young boy of nine years fell and disappeared in an outdoor drain on Mira Road, and two men were drowned in Thane’s various incidents.
Meanwhile, for Mumbai and other districts in the region of Konkan the India Meteorological Department (IMD) sounded a ‘red wake-up call’ and predicted extremely high rainfall in secluded areas in the next 24 hours.
The last couple of days have seen heavy rainfall in Mumbai and its surrounding districts of Thane, Palghar and Raigad.
The incessant drought paralysed normal life and affected many long-distance trains and outskirts. Due to water settlement in the Kalwa station area and on railway tracks the central rail service has been closed.
