Mumbai Rain Videos: Waterlogging, Building Damage: Videos Show Severe Mumbai Rain Situation
The severity of the situation in Mumbai, which has been receiving extremely heavy rainfall coupled with brisk wind, can be best described through the videos emanating from the city that show heavy downpour, crawling traffic amid waist-deep water and buildings that can't cope with the onslaught of the elements.
Mumbai, which is one of the worst sufferers of the coronavirus pandemic, has at its hand one more calamity to deal with - waterlogging. An annual affair during the monsoon season, several roads in the city are filled with waist-deep rainwater, making it difficult for vehicles to move.
This year, the water-logging situation is worse as the city has been receiving much more rainfall than usual. A video shows vehicle wading at snail's speed on a road with water-logging - the sprawling sea running along its length.
In another video, extremely heavy rain with squally wind peels off the tin roof of a building.
Another video shows an uprooted tree fallen on high-tension electrical wires as sparks fly out.
