Incessant rain has lashed parts of Mumbai on Tuesday morning, disrupting local train services and road traffic with water logging in several low-lying areas.
The weatherman has predicted widespread rainfall in the state during the next 36 hours.
The heavy rain has been blamed for the bridge collapsing in Andheri.
Here’s a glimpse of a rain-drenched city.
