Mumbai Rains, Weather News Live Updates: Rainfall has once again started lashing the city of Mumbai and after a night of deluge that uprooted trees, brought down houses and submerged vast parts of the city, the rains have resumed in the morning. The IMD has predicted intense rainfall in isolated places over the next three hours with surface wind speed of 40-50 kmph.
