Mumbai Braces for 'Very Heavy' Rain, Flight Operations Hit

Mumbai: Days after heavy rains in Mumbai and Pune left at least 40 people dead, the monsoon is rearing its head once again in the country's financial capital.

The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted heavy to very heavy rainfall in the city and said that the next two hours are very crucial.
All flight operations were briefly halted at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport following heavy rainfall in Mumbai. "Due to heavy rains, there are no movements at Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport," ANI quoted a Mumbai Airport (MIAL) spokesperson as saying. They were resumed at 9.30 am despite the airport's public relations office confirming "a delay due to weather".
Several airlines including Spicejet has asked passengers to keep track of their respective flights. "Due to bad weather at Mumbai (BOM), all departures/arrivals and their consequential flights might get affected. The passengers are requested to keep a check on their flight status," Spicejet tweeted.
