10 Die As Heavy Rain Hits Mumbai, Several Feared Trapped After Landslides

At least ten people have died after they got buried under the rubble of their home in Mumbai’s Chembur and Vikhroli areas following heavy rains that lashed the city and its suburbs for several hours late yesterday night and early this morning.

Fifteen people have been rescued from Chembur’s Bharat Nagar area and nine people from Vikroli’s Surya Nagar, officials said, adding that those injured have been moved to nearby hospitals for medical attention. Rescue operation is still on in both these areas as more people are feared to be trapped, the official said.

The downpour caused heavy flooding in low lying areas of Chunabhatti, Sion, Dadar, and Gandhi Market, Chembur and Kurla LBS Road.

Visuals from news agency ANI showed cars being swept away by the undercurrents in Borivali east area.
