Torrential rains lashed Mumbai, Thane, Palghar, Raigad and other parts of Maharashtra for the fourth consecutive day, severely affecting normal life and also paralysed local train and bus services in the state capital.
Many parts of Mumbai and suburbs were inundated with upto three to four feet of water, on the highways, main and arterial roads, bylanes, housing complexes, railway stations and even the Mumbai Airport.
However, barring incidents of tree collapse in different parts of the city, flooding and waterlogging, there have been no reports of any casualties so far.
Interestingly, stating her concern, Deepika asked everyone to stay safe. She wrote on her Twitter, ‘’While I do this,alerts showing up on my phone about the rains in Mumbai.Please stay safe and take care everyone.’’
