INDIA Team Latestly|

Mumbai was brought to a near standstill on the first day of this year’s monsoon season. Heavy rains lashed most parts of the city on June 9 morning, leading to traffic snarls and severe waterlogging that left roads, subways, suburban rail tracks and entire neighbourhoods inundated. With the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) once again caught on the wrong foot, despite several assurances, officials decided to shut the key Andheri subway. Andheri subway was among the first to get inundated, for four months across the entire season. According to the India Meteorological Department (IMD), Mumbai recorded 222.2 mm rain in a span of 12 hours - 44 per cent of the monthly average rainfall in June (505 mm). It said the city will continue to receive extremely heavy rain spells, more than 200 mm in 24 hours, till June 13. Several low-lying spots, such as King’s Circle, Hindmata, Gandhi Market in Matunga, Dadar TT, Sion, Kurla West, Andheri, Bandra, Khar, Dharavi, Mankhurd, Chembur & Govandi, experienced severe flooding. According to the BMC, it received six complaints of wall collapse, 14 of short-circuits and 32 of trees and branches falling. Watch the video to know more.
