Port Ops Resume in Mumbai after Heavy Rains

All Mumbai ports and terminals are now returning to normal operations, following several days of heavy rains and flooding, GAC informed.

Port operations have resumed but are affected by labor/staff turnout.

Operations at anchorages have also resumed although some movements are slow, according to GAC.

The rainfall recorded in Mumbai on August 29 is said to be the heaviest in 12 years, with 300mm of rain recorded in some locations.

However, according to local reports, several roads have now been cleared for traffic and the water has receded from some public areas.

In the next few days, more rain is likely to occur in the city and suburbs, according to data provided by India’s Regional Meteorological Centre in Mumbai.
