Heavy rains lashed Mumbai's suburbs on Thursday with the India Meteorological Department forecasting intense spells continuing in isolated places in the city.

At least two persons died in as many incidents of building collapse during the day, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation said.

The IMD issued 'Orange' alert -- which means 'stay prepared' -- for the city.

Rains caused water-logging in Matunga, Dadar, Santacruz, Bandra and Antop Hill areas, he said.

 

The Santacruz weather station in the suburbs recorded 129.4 mm rain between 8:30 am and 5:30 pm on Thursday.

The Colaba weather bureau in Island City reported 18.8 mm rain during the same period.

Areas like Bandra and Mahalaxmi in the city had received 201 mm and 129 mm rainfall, respectively, between 8:30 am on Wednesday and 6:30 am on Thursday.
