Mumbai is under water, again.

Heavy rainfall led to flooding in many parts of the megacity and caused inconvenience for commuters. Traffic congestion was reported in some areas, including Dharavi and the Western Express Highway. However, local train services were unaffected, giving some relief to city residents.

The Indian Meteorological Department said rains were likely to continue throughout the day. It would remain cloudy and parts of Mumbai would receive very heavy rainfall, according to the department.
