Post heavy monsoon rains, a strong tidal wave have led to water logging in many parts of the financial capital of the country Mumbai. Waterlogging hit the normal heavily in the city as not only the road traffic but the Mumbai's life line, the local trains were also hit badly.
Arterial roads in areas like King Circle, Hindmata,
Colaba and Kurla were waterlogged. Colaba has reportedly recorded 101
mm rains while the figure stood at 47.8 mm in Sanatcruz. Due to high
tide, the rain water from the city failed to drain out in the sea,
due to which roads got waterlogged.
This is the story of
financial capital of the country, where rains have hit the normal
life, whereas on the other side the national capital Delhi, despite
arrival of the monsoon, is still reeling under scorching heat.
Yesterday's temperature was recorded at 41.3 degree Celsius, which
also made it Delhi's hottest day in July.
Weather experts have said
that similar weather conditions are likely to prevail in the city
during the next 24 hours. Mahesh Palawat, head of the weather
forecasting team at Skymet Weather, says that it might rain on
"Monsoons have already
reached Delhi, and the rains might start from 13 or 14 July, and may
continue for the next 4-5 days. But the pattern of the rainfall will
be patchy and there will be no continuous rainfall. This year's
monsoon is not very strong due to el-nino effect," said Palawat.
Echoing some similar
views, Dr. M Duraiswamy, Director at Indian Met Department said, "The
monsoon is expected from 14th onwards, but it is going to
be below normal."
Skymet Weather has
predicted even a greater temperature for today at 42.2 degree
Celcius. People may have to also face a condition of high humidity in
the coming days.
