Aug 04, 2019 18:37 IST

As incessant rain continues to pound Mumbai and the coastal Konkan region, Central Railway services were hit and boats had to be deployed to rescue around 400 people stranded in the Kurla suburb. Water seeped into homes in Kurla, following which the BMC deployed rubber boats to rescue people. As the downpour continued many areas of Mumbai, neighbouring areas of Thane, Palghar also remained submerged. The BMC's Disaster Control Unit has issued an alert warning to people to keep away from coastal areas and beaches in the city.
