Mumbai, July 24

After a week’s lull, monsoon revived with full force in Mumbai, coastal Konkan and other parts of Maharashtra, disrupting normal life here on Wednesday.

Heavy rain continued to lash Mumbai since 1 am and the city woke up to water-logging in many low-lying areas, flooded railway tracks and huge traffic snarls.

Office-goers and students alike were hit due to crawling traffic, besides suburban trains running late by 15-25 minutes on the Western Railway and Central Railway.

Important roads in some parts of the city and suburbs like Parel, Dadar, Wadala, Kurla, Sion, Tilak Nagar, Andheri, Santacruz, Khar, Goregaon, Malad and other pockets were flooded seriously hampering traffic flow and pedestrian movement, leading to traffic diversions.

According to the BrihanMumbai Municipal Corporation Disaster Control, since midnight till 7 am on Wednesday, the city recorded 171 mm rain and suburbs notched 58.2 mm rain.

The IMD here has forecast bouts of heavy rain with intermittent showers for Mumbai, Palghar, Thane, Raigad and Ratnagiri in the next two days. IANS
