A washed away car, submerged rail tracks, flooded roads are some of the striking images from Mumbai and its suburbs grappling with heavy monsoon rains, second highest July rain since 1975.

Between 8.30am Monday and 8.30am Tuesday, the Santacruz weather station, representative of the suburbs and Mumbai, recorded 375.2mm rain, falling under the ‘exceptionally heavy’ category (when the amount of rainfall is highest recorded for the season or over a decade according to the India Meteorological Department). According to IMD, the last time the city recorded the exact figure was in 1974 in July at 375.2mm.
