Several people died in house collapses triggered by landslides as incessant overnight rains pounded Mumbai and nearby areas, with the city witnessing severe waterlogging, and disruption of local train services and vehicular traffic. More than 10 people died after a compound wall came crashing down on some houses after a landslide at Bharatnagar Vashi Naka locality in Mumbai’s Mahul area. The retaining wall collapsed at 1 am. Two people were injured and taken to nearby Rajawadi hospital from where they have been discharged after preliminary treatment. At least five hutment dwellers were killed as five shanties collapsed after a landslide following incessant overnight rains in Mumbai’s Vikhroli suburb at 2.30 am, a civic official said. Two persons were injured and were sent to a nearby hospital, he added.
Incessant overnight rains threw parts of Mumbai out of gear on Sunday with the city witnessing severe waterlogging, disruption of local train services and vehicular traffic. The IMD has issued a red alert for Mumbai in the backdrop of heavy rains, a BMC official said. The suburban train services on both Central Railway and Western Railway in the financial capital were suspended due to waterlogging in the tracks due to the overnight heavy downpour, railway officials said.
