Mumbai Rains | City braces for another day of hardship after rain fury: In Pics

The city and its suburbs virtually have a public holiday on Wednesday with Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis advising people to stay back home unless there is an emergency. Mumbai received 298 mm of rainfall over a period of 9 hours on Tuesday, nine times more rain than the average, an IMD official said. The spell of heavy rains is likely to continue as well, he added. Traffic on the Eastern and Western Express highways, the two key arterial roads in Mumbai, which was crawling at a snail's pace, is slowly returning to normalcy. Torrential rains had pounded the metropolis throughout the day yesterday. The city gauged a whopping 298 mm of rainfall, the highest in a day in August since 1997.
