Mumbai/ New Delhi: For the second consecutive day in Mumbai, the monsoon plays havoc with the people making it worst for them to travel on the roads due to waterlogging. But the situation is just opposite in North India, where people are in double jeopardy – firstly the scorching heat clubbing with frequent power cuts – and are anxiously waiting for rain.

Mumbaikars on Thursday morning woke up to intermittent heavy rains. The temperature also moved in sync with the wet weather as it has dipped to 26 degrees Celsius.

Meanwhile, the torrential rains have led to delay in the movement of local trains in Western line. Due to the incessant rain, major roads and crossings got waterlogged, as a result people were facing a lot of difficulties to commute. Commuters have to wade through the water, especially the old age people and females were struggling hard to commute.

The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted heavy rains in Mumbai in the next 24 hours. Residents of many low lying areas in the metropolis are already battling water logging. The situation is acute in areas like Dadar, Hindmata, Parel and Sion.

Weathermen say occasional spells of rain is expected in the next 24 hours.
