On Tuesday morning, heavy rains threw normal life out of gear in the metropolis, leading to waterlogging in low-lying areas and disrupting local train services that hampered mobility of thousands in the morning rush hours.

Many other trains were rescheduled including the August Kranti Rajdhani Express.

The incessant rains claimed two lives in a wall collapse at Govandi last evening.

Low-lying areas like Kurla,Chembur, Tilak Nagar, Andheri, Parel and Lower Parel as well as parts of the neighbouring Thane, Navi Mumbai and Raigad suffered water logging.

The Western Railway's suburban services were affected between Andheri and Churchgate stations for some time due to a point failure that forced closure of two tracks while train movement on the Central line was suspended for sometime as tracks on some stretches were submerged due to the heavy downpour.

The suburban trains services were suspended for nearly 10 minutes at around 10.15 AM between Kurla and CST due to submergence of tracks between Sion and Kurla, according to a statement by the Central Railway.

During the last 24 hours, Colaba in south Mumbai received 15.8 mm rainfall while Santacruz weather station recorded 61 mm downpour.

The MeT department has issued a high tide warning.
