MEanwhile, issuing a warning to people, the weather department had issued a 'red alert' to most parts of Mumbai today. 

Accordingly, out of the 150 weather stations in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR), around 100 recorded over 200 mm rainfall in last 24 hours, stated India Meteorological Department (IMD).

"This shows how widespread the rainfall has been over Mumbai. We have issued a red alert for various places, including Mumbai city and suburbs, Thane and Palghar districts, for next 24 hours," an IMD official told PTI.
