Operations at Mumbai airport have been suspended for some time due to low visibility. 

If you've just joined us, it has been raining incessantly since morning and with high tide just setting in and the rain showing no signs of abating, Mumbai could be in for another horror of flooding, traffic jams and long hours on the roads.

As per the Regional meteorological centre, Mumbai, the city will experience intermittent rain with heavy to very heavy rain fall in a few places in the city and suburbs over the next 24 hours.

As the financial capital stopped in its tracks, no respite was in sight as the MeT department forecast "extremely heavy rainfall" in the next 24 to 48 hours in the western coast of Maharashtra, including Mumbai, and parts of Gujarat
and Goa. Traffic jams were reported on all major arterial roads, including the Eastern and Western Express Highway, Sion-Panvel highway and LBS Marg as the rains continued since last night.

Waterlogging was reported in low-lying areas of Parel and Sion. A tree fell on the busy Saat Rasta road, affecting road traffic.
