According to data from the civic body, the island city received 119.09 mm of rain from 8 am to 8 pm on Thursday.

Amid incessant rainfall in the city, two incidents of building collapse were reported at Kalbadevi and Sion areas on Thursday. But there were no casualties and people were evacuated safely from the affected structures, officials said.

Flooding in various parts of Mumbai also prompted the Brihanmumbai Electric Supply and Transport (BEST) undertaking to divert over 12 bus routes.
