02 July, 2020 4.30 pm IST, Mumbai: Heavy rains and gusty winds for 2 days straight brought the normal life of the busy city to a halt. Not only Mumbai but also the adjoining districts were severely affected by the floods triggered by this heavy rainfall.
According to the Indian Meteorological Department’s Santa Cruz observatory, the city received approximately 200 mm of rain in the last 48 hours. This is said to be the heaviest shower received by the city this year.
Several suburbs and parts of the city have reported flooding, property damage, and waterlogging. The water level rose above 4 feet in some areas causing severe damage.
The central part of Mumbai was the worst affected. The electric poles in many residential areas fell down which led to a blackout and posed as a death threat to a number of citizens. All the means of public transport were cancelled resulting in monetary losses and heavy inconvenience.
North Konkan is very likely to receive heavy rainfall at isolated places for the next 24 hours. The intensity of the fall is expected to reduce later.
Official sources said that several cheques were received as donations and contributions from all over the country were added to the State Relief Fund. More and more people were triggered to pour in donations observing the drastic agricultural losses.
It will take about 2 weeks to go back to normal as heavy rainfall can be expected the following week and readers are requested to avoid stepping out unnecessarily. For any queries feel free to ping the state helpline number 1098.
