Mumbai, July 29 : Heavy downpour in Mumbai  brought life to an almost standstill on Thursday night,  as thundershowers lashed several parts of the city.


Parel, Kurla, Deonar, Ghatkopar, and many other low-lying areas were waterlogged and traffic came to a halt.

Suburban rail services on both Western and Central Railway  were delayed but the  services were restored on Friday morning when the weather cleared a bit.

The rains started around 9 pm, and within an hour places around Chembur recorded 50 mm rainfall. Khar, Santacruz, Malad and Kandivali were also drenched.

Civic officials say the high tide that began at 10.21 pm compounded the problem of flooding.

Several motorists were stranded below the newly-constructed Lalbaug Flyover due to waterlogging.

Mumbai witnessed a washout on Thursday night, with thundershowers lashing several parts of the city.

Severe waterlogging was reported in Parel, Kurla, Deonar, Ghatkopar, and many other low-lying areas.

Traffic came to a halt and trains on both Western and Central were delayed.
