Heavy rains in Mumbai since Thursday has disrupted normal life in the city. The continuous downpour has led to water-logging in many parts of the city, stranding commuters and office-goers.

Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), the city's civic, has body ordered the shutdown of all schools in Mumbai for three days, and asked Mumbaikars to venture out of their homes only if necessary. The Bombay High Court has also declared holiday on accounts of heavy rain.

Services on main line and Harbour line have stopped due to water logging on the tracks.
