In the view of heavy rainfall predicted in Navi Mumbai and other areas, the municipal corporation of Navi Mumbai has cancelled vaccination drive for June 10. Besides, special vaccination drive for persons with disabilities has also been postponed.

On Wednesday, waterlogging at several places across Navi Mumbai has been reported. Since June 8 night, the city has been receiving intermittent rainfall. The city recorded more than 150 mm average rainfall in the last two days.

A few places in Vashi and Panvel saw waterlogging due to heavy rainfall. Civic employees were seen restarting the pump and generator at low-lying areas where waterlogging was reported.

As per the instructions of the Indian Meteorological Department of extreme rainfall from June 10 to 12, the Municipal Commissioner Abhijeet Bangar immediately called a meeting of all the concerned department heads as well as all assistant commissioners and executive engineers through web communication and instructed all the agencies to be vigilant so that no problem would arise during this period.

Central Railway (CR) Spokesperson Shivaji Sutar said that due to water-logging near Chunabhatti station all services on the Harbour Line between Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus and Vashi (Navi Mumbai) were suspended in the morning.
