Mumbai: With the onset of monsoon in Maharashtra since June 9, heavy rainfall has lashed several parts of the state and day-to-day life in the Maximum City and the adjoining areas have been thrown out of gear. Transport has been halted in several parts of the city. Also, due to heavy rainfall railway tracks were completely submerged. 

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) had issued an orange alert as there is a forecast of heavy rain at isolated places in the city for the weekend. IMD has issued an orange alert for Pune, Satara and Kolhapur districts in western Maharashtra on Saturday and Sunday, and for Bhandara, Gondia and Gadchiroli districts in the Vidharbha region on Sunday. Mumbai has been set on high alert as a heavy downpour is expected on Monday.

Earlier today, visuals have emerged from Sion, Mumbai, showing how heavy rainfall has lashed the area. IMD has also predicted poor visibility due to heavy rainfall which might halt the flight movement in the financial capital of India.
