Rains have touched the Kerala coast on Tuesday, marking its entry into the Indian mainland.

The civic body is gearing up for the monsoon as well. Ahead of monsoon, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has identified 66 chronic flooding spots in Mumbai, most of which are in the island city.
Chronic spots are where water takes longer to recede in case of heavy rain. While the number of spots had come down to 55, the BMC has added 11 more to the list after the 2015 flooding, a senior civic official said.
