Trees uprooted, homes blown away, local trains halt: Rain, winds at cyclone speed lash Mumbai
In line with the Indian Meteorological Department's (IMD) prediction, heavy rain and high-velocity rains lashed the city of Mumbai for a second consecutive day on Wednesday. Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray's office has appealed to citizens to remain indoors.
According to inputs, wind speed gushing up to 106 km/hr was reported from Mumbai's Colaba area on August 5. This was way more intense than what Mumbai had to face during the recent cyclone Nisarg.
