Here's what you need to know-
Due to high rainfall in Mumbai city, the local trains hit an obstacle. The high rainfall resulted in waterlogging, in not just several streets around Mumbai but also on many train tracks for the Mumbai local trains. As of now, these trains are not operable. Many parts of Mumbai saw high rainfall on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, which led to overflowing train tracks.
As of now, local train services have been affected due to the rains which began from Tuesday afternoon. Central Railways services between Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus(CSMT) and Thane railway station have been suspended, along with harbour railway lines also being affected.
Heavy rains bring Mumbai city to a standstill
Following the water logging issue in stations, streets and train tracks, the Western Railways made it clear that trains won't ply on any routes until the issue is solved. Train services between Churchgate and Andheri railway stations are suspended, for now. Train services between Andheri and Virar railway stations remain operational.
One of the biggest concerns is that, it is not only the train tracks which have been hit, but the stations too. Passengers at the Sion railway station faced difficulties due to the rain as there was severe waterlogging in the tracks.
Passengers at the Kurla railway station and Chuna Bhatti railway station faced difficulties due to waterlogging. Streets in Goregaon also witnessed water logging due to the rains. The rains have not only disrupted the train routes but have brought the city to a standstill.
According to the Met. department, Mumbai will see at least a few more days of rain, meaning that it would be best to stay indoors and avoid any issue altogether.
