The clouds open up again

The rain is back. NDTV reports:

Heavy rainfall in Mumbai has flooded the busy Andheri, Worli, Sion, Kurla, Wadala, Chembur and Borivili areas.

The airport in Mumbai has called off all flight operations, reports on Saturday said.

The showers also crippled transport systems on the ground forcing diversions to avoid flooded roads and disrupted rail services.

The weather office has forecast more rainfall throughout Saturday.

There's more from Rediff and CNN-IBN. Peter Griffin SMSs to inform me that Vashi is waist-deep in water in some places, and there's no electricity, and therefore no access to the internet or television reports. Heavy rain is expected to continue today, and staying indoors is advisable.
