Live: Landslides, floods kill at least 5 in Maha's Raigad

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) predicted 'heavy to very heavy rains' at a few places in Mumbai, Thane and Palghar on Friday. Earlier on Thursday, rains lashed many parts of the state leaving people stranded. Heavy rainfall also led to massive waterlogging, disruption of local train services and vehicular traffic across several locations in the city and its suburbs.Meanwhile, the MSRTC came to the rescue of stranded people. It arranged for buses with the help of the Central Railway Mumbai division for passengers who were stranded in trains in far-flung suburbs -- from Umbermali/Kasara to Kalyan. It operated 133 buses between Igatpuri and Kasara/Kalyan and ferried 5,800 passengers, said transport minister Anil Parab. On the Mumbai Pune route, 65 special buses were operated from Pune to Mumbai and nine from Mumbai to Pune to ferry those stranded en route.Stay tuned to get more updates...
