Due to heavy overnight rains in Mumbai, local trains are running later because of water-logging on railway tracks. Several trains have been delayed or cancelled.
Water-logging has been reported in several low-lying areas including Sion, Dadar and Malad.
Traffic crawled on Western Expressway as it rained intermittently.
Heavy rain is likely to continue for the next few hours over Mumbai, Thane, Raigad and Palghar, ANI reported quoting the Met department.
“13 trains have been cancelled today. After receding of water, train movement at Palghar was started at 8.05 hours at restricted speed of 30 kmph in view of safety,” the Western Railways tweeted.
Some trains including the Mumbai-Ahmedabad Shatabdi Express have been regulated in view of safety, it said.
Railway tracks between Sion and Matunga stations were submerged, according to ANI. As trains were stopped, passengers were seen walking on tracks.
On Monday, at least 100 mm of rainfall was recorded between 4 and 5 am, with more than 360 mm recorded overnight.
