Mumbai Police warns heavy rain in the city tonight, issue advisory not to venture in water-logged areas and near sea

Mumbai police have warned that the city will receive heavy rain through the whole night tonight. A tweet posted on the official Twitter handle of Mumbai police requested people to not venture into water-logged areas in the city, as the water level will go up due to the expected rains.


Mumbai police also asked people to stay away from the sea, and asked to contact them over phone or Twitter in case of any emergency.

Mumbai received heavy rains during the day, which caused waterlogging in several areas of the city. The waterlogging had caused massive traffic jams at various parts of the city. Several flights were also delayed at the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport due to the rains.

The India Meteorological Department has predicted heavy to very heavy rainfall in Mumbai, Thane and Navi Mumbai in the next 24 hours. IMD has issued orange alert in several districts in Maharashtra. Orange alert is just one level below red alert, which works as a warning for authorities to get prepared.


It may be noted that on this same day in 2005, more than 1000 people had lost their lives in Mumbai after the city had faced an unprecedented amount of rain. Most of the city was flooded, caused by 944 mm rain in just 24 hours on 26th July, which was more than the annual rainfall in many parts of the country.
