Mumbai turned into an extension of the sea today as unprecedented rains deluged the country's financial capital, delaying flights, jamming traffic, flooding homes and having rescue teams out on the roads since morning. In several places, the local trains grinded to a halt, and long distance trains were cancelled. In the evening office hours, the waterlogging pushed people to look for the nearest shelter, abandoning thoughts of reaching home. The met office declared a red alert for the next 24 hours, indicating that the situation might worsen.
