Mumbai witnessed a heavy downpour on early Tuesday morning. The incessant rains since Monday night and has led to water logging in several areas of city, slowing down traffic movement and delaying city's life line, the suburban railway system. With high tide likely in the evening at 4.30pm, the situation could take a turn for the worse if the rains continue.
