However, the rain has not affected the transport services but several areas in the city have received heavy rainfall. According to PTI, South Mumbai, Borivali, Kandivili, Andheri and Bhandup have received heavy rainfall. Talking to PTI, an official from Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) said the civic administration is ready to tackle any untoward eventuality arising out of heavy rainfall.
He also confirmed that both rain and train traffic has remained unaffected. There have been no reports of waterlogging as well. According to the information received from Colaba observatory, the north Konkan region is expected to receive more rains. “Some places are expected to receive heavy showers. Therefore, we have alerted citizens to take precaution,” he said.

Though this is not the first time when Mumbai is dealing with heavy rains. Last month, everything came to a standstill in the city, leading to the death of many people. But today, the situation is under control and no eventuality has been reported so far.
