On Saturday however, both the central and western lines remained unaffected.

Owing to the heavy rain, a tree collapsed Saturday afternoon in Santacruz’s Chappel lane, injuring a senior citizen. The victim, Vimal Lala (65), was taken to Cooper hospital and is under treatment. Her condition is stable, the disaster management unit informed. Ten incidents of tree fall were recorded Saturday.
