Long-distance trains on the Central Railway network were disrupted in Igatpuri area of Nashik district due to accumulation of mud on the tracks following heavy rainfall. The restoration work is underway. Many passengers have been stranded at Igatpuri railway station.

Long-distance trains on the Central Railway network were also disrupted in Thane, Nashik, Pune, Kolhapur and other sections with trains stranded on flooded railway tracks at various locations.

Incessant torrential rains played havoc with normal life in western and coastal Maharashtra since the past 24 hours, disrupting normal life even as rescue teams were deployed to shift thousands marooned in different towns, officials said here on Thursday.

Heavy rains have lashed coastal districts of Thane, Palghar, besides Pune, Nashik, resulting in big and small rivers swelling above the danger levels.

Several towns and cities like Bhiwandi, Badlapur, Ulhasnagar, Kalyan, Dombivali, Chiplun Khed, Sawantwadi, Mangaon, Kudal, and others were inundated with three to six feet water, and higher levels in some lowlying areas.
