Heavy rains disrupt normal life in Mumbai, Thane for 2nd straight day

Mumbai, Aug 5 (UNI) Heavy downpour has thrown normal life out of gear in Mumbai and neighbouring Thane district for the second consecutive day on Wednesday, hitting suburban train services, officials said.
In a rare development, many parts of south Mumbai like Churchgate, Marine Lines, Marine Drive, Kalbadevi, Dongri, Byculla, Mazagaon, Parel, Dadar and its surroundings witnessed heavy waterlogging throwing the central business districts of the area out of gear.
The Central Railway's suburban train services, which functioned normally, were suspended between Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus-Kurla on the mainline and CSMT-Vashi on the Harbour Line after a torrential downpour, CR spokesperson Shivaji Sutar said.
