Pre-monsoon rains relieve Mumbaikars of the scorching heat. However, it proved to be vehement for a few people and occluded a broad array of services. Road and air transport were delayed due to the heavy showers which concede that BMC is not yet ready for monsoon yet.
As per a report by India.com, a wide range of domestic flights, cargo flights, and international flights were either disrupted or brought down to halt.
The Mumbai media has reported that the run was shut down for a while and a Colombo Mumbai flight of the Sri Lankan airways was rechanneled towards Ahmedabad. A circuit made a faux pas as water filled the Western Railway services between Bhayandar and Virar stations thus making it a zoo like a day for the commuters.
The rains abstracted the railway lines leading to a railway halt of around 4 hours. The city was filled with water showered by the Monsoon rain.
The director-in-charge, Regional Weather Forecasting Centre, Mumbai, Bishwombhar Singh said that pre-monsoon rains hit Mumbai and other parts of Maharashtra including Thane.
