  • A total of 55 flights have been diverted and 50 have been cancelled at Mumbai's key Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (CSMIA

The incessant downpour has left Mumbai stagnant and part of the city submerged in water with modes of commute including trains, traffic, and flight getting affected by the heavy rains. 

Similar to most of the city, the visuals from the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport were equally distraught with water accumulated on the premises. 

Moreover, in visuals circulated a manhole at the International Airport could be seen fervently flooding and gushing due to the building water pressure inside.
