Normal life was thrown out of gear in India's financial capital Mumbai, with the city being lashed by heavy rains for the last 48 hours, even as incessant showers continue to hit other cities like Pune and Nashik and other parts of Maharashtra.

Low-lying areas, particularly in Central Mumbai, witnessed water logging with people wading in deep waters in Parel.

Many arterial roads were waterlogged, with commuters facing a tough time in areas like King's Circle, Kurla, Ghatkopar, Vikhroli, Link Road, Mahim Causeway, Hindmata, Dadar TT, LBT, and Parel Road.

Local train services across the city and the suburbs are severely hit. Trains on Central line are running hours behind schedule.
