Around 7 pm on Monday, pre-monsoon showers with lightning started from parts of Navi Mumbai and within a few minutes had reached parts of Mumbai like Mira Road, Borivali, Mulund, Dadar, Wadala, Parel and parts of Fort and Colaba.

Waterlogging has also been reported in the city and suburbs, leading to huge traffic snarls on the two highways and other roads in the city and suburbs.

At least nine incoming flights of different airlines were diverted from Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport to other airports like Ahmedabad due to weather conditions.
