Schools have been shut for the day in the wake of heavy rainfall warning issued by the India Meteorological Department (IMD) in Mumbai. Heavy traffic and water logging has brought the city to a standstill.
Suburbs of the city recorded 131.4 mm (very heavy) rainfall over the last 24 hours (between 8.30 am on Monday and 8.30 am on Tuesday).
“In wake of IMD’s warning of heavy rainfall for rest of the day, schools shall remain closed today. Principals of schools where students are already in, are requested to take precautions and ensure that they are sent back home carefully and safely,” Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation PRO said, according to reports.
