Mumbai Rains on Sunday update.
A lull in the rains. Power is back. Roads are opening out now. The police were on the roads at Worli, Tardeo, HajiAli and diverting traffic. They've been opened now. SV Road is good to use too.

Bombay reels under rains again .... people are wildly stocking groceries and vegetables - milk powder is in big demand. I was at the vegetable vendor stocking up, and everyone seems so angry with the city administration for their lack of action.
It has rained heavily all night and continues to do so. Haji Ali, Worli Naka, Mahim Junction, Kalanagar Junction, Matunga, King's Circle, Sion Circle, are among the areas already waterlogged. I hope it doesn't create havoc again. Thankfully it's a Sunday, so as many people will not be stranded as they were last week. NDTV reports that rescue teams have been sent to Dharavi, Andheri, Vakola, Ghatkopar, Chembur. SV Road is closed between Bandra and Andheri.
Power is down again, as is the internet cable. Ironically, people are filling all the buckets and large utensils they have with water in case the water supply doesn't last.
Check out this new community blog called Cloudburst Mumbai. It has been set up to collect news and links to news about the cloudburst in Mumbai on the 26th July, 2005, and its aftermath.
