It is a famous saying that ‘Life never stops in Mumbai’ but now it seems like the ‘city of dreams’ has clogged because of the heavy rains. The rains have pummelled the city and adjoining areas, disrupting rail, road and air services and threw normal life out of gear.
As the ‘financial capital’ stopped in its tracks, no respite was in sight as the MeT department forecast “extremely heavy rainfall” in the next 24 to 48 hours on the western coast of Maharashtra, including Mumbai, and parts of Gujarat and Goa.
Waterlogging was also reported in several parts of Mumbai and adjoining areas.
The Twitterati have put their concern on the social networking site and offering help via using hashtag #MumbaiRains. Here are the top tweets:
