Rains and high tide spell trouble for Mumbaikars!
Even as heavy rains lashed the city on Sunday, authorities warned Mumbaikars to exercise caution as they venture out towards the sea to soak in the showers. On Sunday, a high tide of 4.9 metres was recorded, above the safe limit of 4.5 metres. The high tides will continue till Thursday, according to officials of the India Meteorological Department. However, the inconvenience caused was much less, being a Sunday, while the combination of incessant rains and a high tide led to water logging in low-lying areas of the city as sea water forced its way in. Apart from water logging, filth defaced shores in areas like Marine Drive, Mahim and Dadar. The worst hit by the rains were Mumbai’s satellite towns and other coastal regions. The Central Railway service had to be suspended after water logged on the tracks at Kalwa in Thane. The Afternoon D&C photographers Santosh Gupta and Azad Shrivastav captures the moments from the rainy day.

It may have to do with a change of location. Rest assured that your will get some good news about it soon.
