Mumbai, which experiences deadly showers every year during the monsoon season, has already recorded 64 % of its August quota of rain in the first five days of the week.
The rain has unfortunately turned out to be so ghastly that a portion of a building in Mumbai’s Dadar region is seen collapsing in a video that has gone viral. The video has been widely circulated on social media lately.
Maharashtra has been receiving extreme showers coupled with heavy wind for the last few days. Due to this, many buildings in the city have suffered severe damages. The video shows that the face of the building – already damaged – completely collapses. There is no report of any casualty yet.
South Mumbai’s Colaba region, where the famous Gateway of India is situated, reported its heaviest single-day rainfall in August in 46 years on Wednesday.
Mumbai’s is waterlogged yet again. Traffic congestions coupled with vehicles moving at almost a snail’s pace have made the lives of office-goers a living hell. The DY Patil stadium couldn’t bear the extremely heavy rain and wind reaching up to 107 km per hour.
