The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) on Saturday said that high tide of 4.74 meters is expected to hit Mumbai later today and that low tide of 1.32 meters will occur in the evening at around 8:37 pm.
High tide means during the rainy season, flooded water in the city find it difficult to get into the seas while low tide will help the flood waters in the city to find an outlet to enter into the seas.
The BMC further informed that high tide of 4.06 meters will occur at around 2:45 am and low tide of 0.80 meters will occur at 8:36 am on Sunday.
Heavy rainfall in the city of Mumbai and in suburbs has been predicted by India Meteorological Centre. The minimum and maximum temperatures will hover around 25 degree Celsius and 30 degree Celsius throughout the day.
However, a part of a tree fell on Mulund station’s cover over platform owing to the torrential rain and got entangled with Pantograph of a slow local train.
The services returned to normalcy after the branches of the tree were removed later.
The heavy downpour also led to severe waterlogging in Mumbai and Thane with locals wading through ankle-deep waters to commute.
