Heavy rains lash Mumbai

It should be noted here that heavy rains lashed parts of Mumbai in the last 24 hours, as Santacruz witnessed 101.5mm rainfall and several other areas also received substantial downpours. The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued a 'yellow' alert for the city, predicting moderate to heavy showers on Monday. 

Due to continuous rainfall in the city for the last few days, the Mumbaikars are facing several issues like traffic jams and waterlogging. Meanwhile, nearby areas are also prone to landslides due to heavy rainfall. On Sunday, a part of the Mumbai-Pune Expressway was blocked because of a landslide near the Adoshi village in Raigad.
