Heavy rains lashed the economic capital causing water logging in several parts of the city on Tuesday. But, the transport system was operational that gave respite to the commuters. The local train and flight services were also operating with a delay of 10-15 minutes. 

A few places like Kurla and its adjoining areas witnessed water logging. 

On Sunday, the weather department had forecast heavy rains in Mumbai and the coastal Konkan region for the next three days.

On August 29, the metropolis received more than 300 mm rainfall, crippling the transport services and throwing normal life out of gear.
