Mumbai: Mumbai received moderate rainfall throughout Saturday, sending the city's minimum temperature plunging to 24 degrees Celsius.

While the city got a breather from the high-speed winds of the past couple of days, the overall climate was cloudy.

 

According to the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD), the city received 45 mm rainfall in the last 24 hours, with moderate to heavy rainfall predicted for the next four to five days.

As per information from disaster manage-ment, between Friday night and 7am Saturday, Malad received 30 mm rainfall; Goregaon received 25 mm; Bhandup 19 mm; Vikhroli 16 mm; and Nariman Point 13mm rainfall.

Up to 6pm Saturday, the city area received  7.3 mm rainfall; eastern suburbs 7.2 mm; and western suburbs only 1.7 mm. Trees continued to fall across the city with 52 such incidents recorded Saturday and four late night Friday.

Due to rainfall, four incidents of wall collapse were reported. Late night Friday, a boundary wall of a building in Green Field, Malad, collapsed, crushing four to five vehicles parked next to it. However, no one was injured in the incident.

 

Train services ran on time Saturday even as roads in a few areas saw traffic  congestion.

The light but continuous showers led to traffic issues at a few places. In areas in the western suburbs where metro construction work is underway, barricades led to traffic jams in the evening.

The city will continue to get moderate rainfall Sunday as well, according to the disaster management unit.
