Not less than 30 people have died after several houses in two Mumbai suburbs collapsed due to landslides caused by heavy rain falls.
This was reported by local officials on Sunday July 17, 2021.
According to the report, rescuers were seen using hands to dig up the ground to retrieve bodies.
“Local television showed, and authorities said more could be trapped inside the debris,” the report says.
Four of those injured were taken to a nearby hospital, officials said.
“In one of the neighborhoods, about half a dozen huts located at the base of a hillock collapsed on top of each other,” officials said.
The officials added that several areas in the city were waterlogged after heavy rainfall over the last 24 hours.
They stressed that the suburban train services were disrupted, crippling India’s financial capital, where incidents of building collapses have become more common during the monsoon.
