Residents of Mumbai got some relief on Friday morning after two days of nonstop rains in the city and its suburbs, according to civic officials.
They stated that the city’s transportation systems, including suburban trains and buses, are operating on a regular timetable.
Heavy rains caused flooding on roads and rail tracks, interrupting suburban train services, as the southwest monsoon arrived in the city with a bang on Wednesday. On that day, the first rains of the monsoon season in Mumbai had created waterlogging in many parts of the city.
The eastern suburbs of Mumbai had 51.76 millimetres of rain in the last 24 hours, followed by 43.42 millimetres on the island city and 34.33 millimetres in the western suburbs, according to a BMC official.
Another official stated that after two days of nonstop rain, rains have halted in the city and suburbs since around 9 a.m., allowing inhabitants to glimpse the sun for the first time.
A high tide of 4.34 metres was forecast at 12.54 p.m. on Friday, which kept the civic administration on its toes. They have breathed a sigh of relief now that the rain has ceased.
