MUMBAI, July 18: Twenty-three people were killed in the wee hours of Sunday as incessant, torrential rains lashed the Mumbai metropolitan city and its suburbs. Issuing a red alert, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted more "moderate to Heavy rain or thundershowers in city and suburbs with the possibility of very heavy rainfall at a few places."

Most of the casualties were from wall collapses. Mumbai has come to a standstill with local train services being suspended due to waterlogging. The slums are the worst affected. Water supply in the whole city was suspended in the morning due to power failure.

It has been raining heavily since Friday, leading to water-logging on tracks. The suburban services on the Central Railway's main line and the Harbour line have been disrupted.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced Rs 2 lakh each for the next of kin of the deceased from the Prime Minister's National Relief Fund. A sum of Rs 50,000 would be given to the injured.

"Saddened by the loss of lives due to wall collapses in Chembur and Vikhroli in Mumbai. In this hour of grief, my thoughts are with the bereaved families. Praying that those who are injured have a speedy recovery," Modi said.
