On Sunday private weather forecaster Skymet said “Mumbai recorded the highest amount of rainfall at 110.80 mm between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm”, a Met department official said. “Expect showers to be as intense today as well.”
Last year also the same happened During the August 2017 monsoon, Mumbai experienced heavy rains that disturbed the city’s normal life. Torrential rains hit Mumbai again on September 19, 2017, flooding low-lying areas and crippling rail, road and air traffic of the city. Schools and colleges were forced to shut down.
