Heavy rain is expected in Mumbai until Friday, prompting the deployment of the NDRF; commuters experience waterlogging issues.

The IMD has issued a yellow advisory for the districts of Mumbai and Thane, anticipating heavy rainfall in isolated areas until Friday. In response to the significant rain expected, the NDRF has sent five teams in the city.


The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted a particularly wet week for Mumbai residents. The meteorological service has issued a yellow notice for the districts of Mumbai and Thane, anticipating heavy rainfall in isolated areas until Friday.


In the aftermath of the yellow warning, five National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) teams have been dispatched in Mumbai.


After a brief respite, torrential rains returned to the Maximum City on Monday, causing flooding in low-lying regions and disrupting vehicle traffic on main routes.


The deluge also disrupted the city's local rail network. Some trains on the CSMT-Thane segment were delayed by 10-15 minutes on the mainline, while others on the harbour line were delayed by 10 minutes. The Trans-Harbour connection and the Nerul/Belapur to Kharkopar line were both functioning smoothly.


According to city officials, Mumbai had an average of 95.81 mm of rain in the 24 hour period ending at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, while the eastern and western suburbs received 115.09 mm and 116.73 mm of rain, respectively.


The downpour persisted throughout Tuesday morning. The Bandra-Sion T Junction was swamped, causing traffic in the vicinity to stall as commuters waded through soggy areas.


Due to the constant rains in Mumbai and the resulting waterlogging, a total of eight route diversions have been implemented at Sion Road no. 24 and Shell Colony, Chembur in Mumbai, according to the PRO of the Brihanmumbai Electric Supply and Transport (BEST).


Heavy rains pummelling neighbouring Mumbai regions such as Thane and Navi Mumbai for a brief spell on Monday.


The weatherman has issued an orange signal, expecting severe to very heavy rainfall at isolated locations in Raigad, Ratnagiri, and Sindhudurgdistricts from June 4 to June 8.


 


A yellow notice has been issued for the Palghardistrict for the next two days, followed by an orange alert for the following three days.


Currently, eight NDRF teams are stationed in Maharashtra, with one each in Nagpur, Chiplun, and Malad, and the remaining five in Mumbai. Massive floods hit Chiplun and Mahad cities last year, leading officials to begin significant rescue operations. Landslides have also been recorded.


Eknath Shinde, the newly sworn-in Maharashtra Chief Minister, has urged collectors in Raigad and Ratnagiri districts to take measures in light of the heavy rain anticipated. "Some rivers have reached the alert level," said the Chief Minister's Office in his statement.
