Tuesday's rain in Mumbai has brought the city to a standstill with MET department warning of "heavy intermittent spells" in the next few hours.

The traffic and the train services are suspended temporarily between Elphinstone Rd-Dadar on all lines with effect from 1.30 p.m., news agency ANI reported.

Further warning the people, Aditya Thackeray, whose Shiv Sena party controls the city's civic body BMC, reportedly said, "It isn't a panic situation but only step outside your house if absolutely necessary."

However, India Meteorological Department (IMD) Director General KJ Ramesh refused to draw any parallel between the current situation with that on 26 July 2005, when the city was inundated after being battered by rain and hundreds were killed.

Here are the "before and after" pictures of some areas of the city.
