We are also running special trains apart from Sunday schedule ", Sunil Udasi, Chief Public Relation Officer (CPRO) said.
As the rain spell continues to drown the city, a high tide of about 4.69 meters is also expected to hit Mumbai at 12:35 pm today, according to the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC). The organisation also stated that a low tide of about 1.58 meter will occur at 6:34 in the evening today.
