The rain fury continued unabated in Mumbai on Monday with local train services affected and several low-lying areas in the Western suburbs under knee-deep water, hampering flow of vehicular traffic.
The trains on the Harbour Line were running 25 minutes late and the schedule of trains on the Central Railway went haywire due to water-logging in culverts and nullahs near Kurla and Chunnabhatti stations. A number of local trains were cancelled.
On the Western Railway, train services were not much affected.
Several low-lying areas in Goregaon, Santacruz, Andheri and Jogeshwari were flooded and people were seen wading through knee-deep water.
The incessant rains led to Tulsi and Modak Sagar overflowing and the water level of Tansa and Vihar increased after it received bountiful rains. However, Mumbai and its suburbs were still experiencing a 15 per cent water cut since July 1.
