Mumbai: Vehicles stuck in a heavy traffic jam on Western Express Highway following monsoon rains

Maharashtra rains: Three persons were injured in a landslide in Mumbai which continued to get pounded by heavy showers for the third straight day on Wednesday, resulting in water-logging at many places and traffic disruptions, while the Maharashtra government asked officials to remain vigilant and take steps to avoid loss of lives in the metropolis and other rain-affected areas of the state. No relief was expected anytime soon as the India Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued a heavy rainfall alert for several parts of Maharashtra, including the financial capital, for the next two days. Amid the downpour, three persons, including a 15-year-old boy, were injured in a landslide that hit a 'chawl' (old row tenements) in the Chunabhatti area, a civic official said. A portion of a hill crashed on the two-storey Narayan Hadke chawl around 10.30 am, the official said, adding three rooms were also damaged in the landslide. Mumbaikars continued to face hardship due to flooding on roads which slowed down vehicular traffic and affected normal life. Chief Minister Eknath Shinde, who took charge just a week ago, chaired a meeting of officials, where he asked them to remain alert and take necessary steps to ensure that there is no loss of life during the monsoon. On Tuesday too, Shinde had presided over a meeting to take stock of the rain situation in the state and also visited the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation's (BMC) disaster management control room. At Wednesday's meeting, Shinde directed Railway authorities and the BMC administration to appoint a nodal officer for coordination between them and for dissemination of information about water-logging and disruption of suburban train services in Mumbai, a statement from the chief minister's office (CMO) said.
