Heavy rains in Mumbai brought life to a halt on Tuesday. Suburban services on both Central Railway (CR) and Western Railway (WR) sections were disrupted.

At least four Mumbai-bound flights were forced to abort landing at the last minute as the airstrip visibility fell amid heavy showers that lashed the city.

During the last 24 hours, Colaba in south Mumbai received 15.8 mm rainfall while Santacruz weather station recorded 61 mm downpour.

According to the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation's (BMC's) disaster management cell, waterlogging was reported at 32 locations in the city. Vehicular traffic movement was diverted and a total of 111 dewatering pumps were put into use at various waterlogged spots.
