Heavy rains inundated roads and railway tracks in Mumbai, India's financial hub, on Monday, prompting authorities to close some schools and colleges. Meanwhile, overflowing rivers in the northeastern state of Assam have impacted over 2 million people.

Mumbai's municipal body reported that more than 300 mm of rain fell within a six-hour period until 7am, with forecasts of further heavy showers later in the day. The morning rush-hour traffic was congested on the Eastern and Western Express highways, and the Central Railway announced the cancellation of some long-distance trains due to waterlogged tracks.

This heavy rainfall in Mumbai followed record-breaking showers in Delhi, the national capital, which led to a fatal airport roof collapse. Intense monsoon rains have also caused floods and landslides in northern and eastern India, as well as in neighboring Nepal, where at least 11 people were killed.

In Assam, more than 2 million people have been affected by floods in several rivers, including the Kaziranga National Park, which is home to the rare one-horned rhino. Local authorities reported that six rhinos drowned as the park was inundated. Since May, at least 66 people have died in flood- and rain-related incidents in the state.

Additionally, flooding has affected 31 villages in Uttar Pradesh, India's most populous state, which borders Nepal, according to the state government.
