Cyclone Biparjoy caused rainfall in Mumbai on June 11 and June 12. Tidal surges, accompanied by gusty winds and heavy rainfall, created chaotic conditions for residents and posed challenges for local authorities. As Cyclone Biparjoy approached Mumbai, it brought about powerful tidal surges along the coastline. The high tides caused seawater to breach the city's defences, flooding several low-lying areas.
The cyclone's strong winds lashed Mumbai and its surrounding areas. The gusts toppled trees, damaged power lines and several areas experienced power outages as a result. A news report in PTI stated that strong winds affected air quality and the visibility due to dust particles.
