Mumbai rains Live Updates: The city of Mumbai woke up to a rainy morning on Wednesday as heavy rains lashed several parts of the metropolis and suburbs. NDRF teams have rescued 1,300 people from Bail Bazar in Kurla as heavy rains batter the city of Mumbai. The water levels have reached four-five feet owing to the flooded Mithi river nearby. The India Meteorological Department has issued a red alert in the city and advised people to say indoors. Torrential showers in the wee hours of the morning caused water-logging in areas such as Sion, Parel, Dadar and Byculla. Adjoining areas like Thane and Navi Mumbai received over 100mm of rainfall in 24 hours ending Wednesday morning. The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has forecasted the maximum and minimum temperatures to hover around 29 degrees Celsius and 24 degrees Celsius respectively. However, the rains are expected to abate by Thursday to just 'heavy rainfall', and further subside to light rains by Friday and Saturday, IMD said. A prediction of 'heavy rain' in weather terminology signifies rainfall between the range of 64.5mm to 115.5mm while 'very heavy rainfall' implies rainfall between 115.6mm to 204.4mm range.
