Heavy rains continued to lash Mumbai and the entire coastal Konkan region on Wednesday (September 04), with waterlogging reported from many areas and authorities advising people to remain indoors. Around 1,300 people were evacuated by the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) teams from Bail Bazar in Kurla, where water levels reached four-five feet owing to the flooded Mithi river nearby. As a precautionary measure, the Brihan Mumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) ordered all schools (government and private) in the city to remain shut for the day, said the BMC Disaster Control.
