Even when a thought of the destruction that happened when the Mumbai rains caused havoc in the year 2005, sends a shiver down the spine. Doesn't it? Just imagine what would happen when the Mumbai rains again hit the city with the year '2005-like' intensity. The extent of destruction of the city and Mumbaikars will shake the entire city if it happens so.
This is really sad that the city is again facing the fury of Monsoon and we can't stop praying for Mumbai and Mumbaikars, who are the victims of a natural calamity at the moment. Mumbai is on high alert, and the normal life of the people has gone for a toss.
Local trains, the lifeline of Mumbai, is on the receiving end majorly and the entire railway system which includes Central Line, Western Line and Harbour Line are not working and the public is left with less rather zero options to commute from a place to another, because even the roads have turned into rivers and lakes.
OMG! Here are some pictures which show how Mumbai Rains are devastating the city and its people.
These pictures got me thinking about safety and security of the public.
And since a week the entire city has been majorly affected. Therefore, BMC declared '1916' as its emergency helpline number.
And turned the normal life upside down.
And it is said that Mumbai may witness the heaviest rainfall ever, in next 48 hours.
Not a single area in the city is safe for the public, anymore.
Severe water logging has left the road transport disturbed and forced it to stop abruptly.
There's a very less scope for people to reach their offices, schools, and colleges.
People are walking for long distances to get back home safely.
This is an image from one of the substations in Mumbai.
Can you see people swimming on the roads to reach a safe destination?
Trees are falling due to heavy rains and strong winds.
And it's too emotional to watch.
Vendors and shopkeepers are facing a lot of trouble to brace their stuffs.
Please save your children.
The entire Mumbai is facing the wrath of heavy rainfall.
Life of the people residing in slums has worsen.
Many people who left for work are stuck in their offices since last night.
