Mumbai received heavy rainfall in the 24 hours till 8 am this morning, although no major water logging was reported and local trains as well as city buses largely ran as per their normal schedule, officials said.
Mumbai had got some respite from rains on Friday morning after a downpour on two previous days brought the city to a halt. However, after a brief break, the city continued to get heavy rains throughout the day.
The weather department – IMD – has issued an orange alert for Mumbai for today and a red alert for Sunday. Mumbai and Thane districts would “very likely receive heavy to very heavy rainfall at a few places (on Saturday),” it has earlier said.
After the IMD’s forecast, the BMC also issued a “high alert” to all the agencies considering “very heavy rainfall” in the next two days
