As heavy rains lashed parts of Mumbai and neighbouring areas of Navi Mumbai and Kalyan on Saturday, at least 40 people were stranded at Chinchoti waterfall in Vasai. Train services between Badlapur and Kalyan railway stations at Central Railway (CR) in Mumbai were suspended for a few hours in the wake of excessive water logging on the tracks between Vitthalwadi and Kalyan stops. Toy train services were also disrupted after a tree fell down between Matheran and Neral. “Due to heavy and continuous rain, there is water logging between Vithalwadi and Kalyan (near level crossing gate) since 10.40 am. As a precautionary measure, trains services were stopped between Badlapur and Kalyan,” a CR official said.
Besides Maharashtra, heavy rains also lashed most parts of Karnataka.
