Mumbai: Ditch the local if it rains beyond 70mm

If it pours above 70mm, avoid taking the local. The suburban railway authorities have stated that they have done everything possible to ensure smooth local operations, but heavily and continuous rains are bound to hit train services.

Central Railway authorities said they will take a call on whether to curtail services in case of heavy rains so commuters aren’t stranded in the middle of flooded tracks. SK Jain, CR’s Divisional Railway Manager (Mumbai), though, said: “If it rains beyond 70mm, then it will be difficult to run trains.”
