- Incessant rain in Mumbai since morning
- Weathermen believe rain could continue for 48 hours in some parts of city
- Industrialist Anand Mahindra called it “typhoon-like weather” in a tweet
Mumbai is struggling in waist-deep water, lashed by what weather officials believe could be the heaviest and longest bout of rain since July 26, 2005, when the city was devastated by floods. “Typhoon-like weather” – as industrialist Anand Mahindra calls it – has left roads flooded in several parts of the city; traffic has slowed down and trains are delayed.
It has rained incessantly since morning – along with strong winds – and if it continues till high tide at 4.30 pm, India’s commercial capital could be in for hours of flooding, traffic jams and stranded cars on the roads.
