Some were stranded at stations, airports due to trains and flights being cancelled. Apart from this there were several places with water logging, compound wall collapse, unstructured building collapse, landslide happening in several parts of Mumbai due to the torrential pouring of rains.
One such incident of landslide took place in Mumbai’s well- known suburb Bhandup during the wee hours of night on 1st July in Gaondevi area. Due to heavy rains following in since Friday a part of the wall of the guard wall collapsed on two hill houses in the Gaondevi area.
