High tide alert announced in Mumbai
Mumbai: The Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM) has advised people not to venture into the sea, as the city would witness high tides measuring about 4.70 metres till June 17.
The MeT department has forecast heavy rainfall, accompanied with thundershowers in the next couple of days.
Meanwhile, the BMC has decided to implement a two-tier safety and security system at the city``s seafront.
The corporation will use services of 150 firefighters, while adding to its team of lifeguards at the seafront.
On Monday, Mumbai received over 20 mm of rainfall that led to water clogging in various parts.
With most parts of the city including Dadar, Goregaon, Malad and Borivli already facing water logging, residents questioned as to what would happen in the days to come.
"We fear that when full monsoon will be on its peak we don`t know what`s going to happen. We really fear for our life and property," said Tasleem Shukul, housing society secretary.
"Without the rains when the water level is rising, then if the rain falls then water level will rise very high. The administration should keep an eye over it," Vivek Chowdhary.
