Twelve trains, including the Mumbai-Goa Vande Bharat Express, were cancelled, and over two dozen were diverted as operations on the Konkan Railway route remained affected for a second day as water leaking through the roof of a tunnel between the Pernem station in Goa and Madure in Maharashtra led to water logging on the tracks.
