MUMBAI: In a huge relief to Mumbaikars, heavy rains took a break on Wednesday and the slight improvement in the weather allowed the authorities to resume suburban train services in some sections. The road traffic was moving smoothly after four days of heavy rains, which had crippled life in the country's financial capital. Trains were packed with commuters since morning on Wednesday and the Western Railway (WR) was running its services on some routes with restricted speed as the tracks were still flooded. The local train services were badly affected on a section of the WR on Tuesday due to inundation of tracks. Though train services resumed on some routes, rail tracks at several stations were still water-logged. The Western Railway also set up Helpline numbers for the convenience of the stranded passengers. At least two persons were also killed in rain-related incidents in Maharashtra’s Palghar
