4 dead, half a dozen missing in Mumbai deluge

At least four persons have died and half a dozen including a prominent doctor were missing as Mumbai struggled hard to return to normalcy on Wednesday - a day after the 29/8 deluge.Overnight people were seen stranded at several places like railway stations and bus stops. Several took shelter in temples, mosques, churches, gurdwara and Jain temples. The NGOs and temple trusts organised food and tea for stranded commuters.

Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis is constantly monitoring the situation and have asked people to step out only if it is absolutely necessary.

The MMR catchment areas including Sanjay Gandhi National Park and Aarey in Mumbai , Tungareshwar Wildlife Sanctuary in Palghar and Tansa Wildlife Sanctuary in Thane are receiving heavy rainfall.
The Mithi river in Mumbai is still flowing over the danger mark in some places.
