Mumbai back to work, train services restored
cancel

Mumbai: A day after heavy downpour and flooding, life in Mumbai was back on track this morning with train services being restored on all the three suburban lines though more rains have been forecast for today.

Ignoring drizzling, men and women streamed to suburban stations around the sprawling Metro to head for their offices and other places of work which remained shut yesterday.

However, Maharashtra government has directed all schools and colleges in the city and neighbouring Thane district to remain close today.

A statement issued by Central and Western Railway said that all suburban services were running as per normal schedule including Harbour line and Trans-Harbour line in Central Railway.

Yesterday, heavy rains pummelled country's financial capital and its suburbs during which two persons were electrocuted. 283 mm of rain, which is normally received in 10 days, was received in just 24 hours yesterday.

Normal life was brought to a grinding halt with several areas waterlogged and local train services cancelled leaving thousands of commuters stranded.

The met department has warned of heavy rains in next 24 hours.

"We have advised people to remain indoors on Saturday," Mumbai's civic body chief Ajoy Mehta said.
