Home Minister Rajnath Singh today spoke to Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and took stock of the situation in Mumbai and nearby areas due to heavy rains.

"Had a telephonic conversation with Maharashtra CM Shri @Dev_Fadnavis regarding the situation due to heavy rains in Mumbai and nearby areas," he tweeted.

The Home Minister said that he assured the Chief Minister of all possible help from the central government. 

Teams of the National Disaster Response Force have already reached Mumbai for rescue and relief ops, he said. 

Torrential rain accompanied by strong winds pummelled Mumbai today, disrupting rail, road and air services, uprooting trees, swamping homes, and bringing the megapolis and satellite towns to their knees. 

People's woes were compounded by the high tide that prevented natural drainage of water into the sea.
