Prime News, National (Mumbai), June 5:- The monsoons have not even arrived with full force here and yet, Mumbai streets have once again disappeared under rainwater – leaving locals to once again fend for themselves due to civic apathy.
Flooded streets is a yearly feature in Mumbai and are almost as certain as claims of civic authorities of having carried out exhaustive desilting across the city. The claims fall flat without fail and it was for all to see on Monday when pre-monsoon showers struck Maximum City for the second consecutive day. Roads went under and traffic went haywire in what – unfortunately – have become all-too-familiar scenes for locals. Water-logging was reported from several parts of the city. The video below is from Peddar Road – a busy arterial road in south Mumbai.
Water-logging was reported from the suburbs as well with massive traffic snarls soon becoming a common sight. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
