Due to incessant rains, trains services between Bhayander and Vasai Road have also been suspended entirely by western railways, but trains on other routes --central, harbour, trans-harbour-- were being run at restricted limits. The western railway is currently providing service till Bhayander with some delay. Due to waterlogging in Vasai Virar region, the electricity has also been cut from early morning onwards to avoid any electrocution mishaps.
