Mumbai came to a standstill after heavy rains flooded streets, hit train services and kept people indoors on Friday.

The Central Railway (CR) and Western Railway (WR) suspended train operations and advised people to travel only if necessary, while schools were shut following the downpour. 

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation advised Mumbaiites to stay indoors for the day, as the weather was expected to get worse with a high tide predicted for Friday afternoon.

Flights at the Mumbai Airport were also delayed due to the weather, according to reports.

As most of Mumbai remained under water, Mumbaiites put up photos on social media sites to show how the city looked like, in a chilling reminder of the 2005 deluge.
