Cyclone Tauktae fury hits Mumbai

The CSMIA in Mumbai registered around 34 arrivals and 22 departures, throughout the day, despite the persistent bad weather. At the same time, seven Mumbai-bound flights were diverted to less turbulent locations on Monday, including an IndiGo Service to Hyderabad and a SpiceJet flight to Surat. Another IndiGo flight was returned to Lucknow due to storm threats. Passengers were advised to check with their respective airlines before making travel plans.
