New Delhi: Heavy rains have struck Mumbai yet again.

On Tuesday afternoon, Mumbai experienced unrelenting rains which have thrown the city out of gear.
High tides of 4.93 meters are expected to hit the Mumbai coast today, says the MeT department. The people of Mumbai are being advised to stay away from the seas as the water level has risen.

Due to the rains, water shortage which was lingering on the city has been met with, which is a big relief for the Mumbaikars.
