Friday, June 19, 2015, 4:49 PM - More than 200 mm of rain fell in Mumbai, India between Thursday and Friday -- inundating streets and bringing traffic to a standstill.

The heavy monsoon rain was courtesy of a low pressure system that formed in the Bay of Bengal.

All schools have been closed and rail travel has been virtually shut down.

"People have been asked not to move out except absolutely necessary. They should stay indoors," an official of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation told NDTV.

Low lying areas have been the hardest hit.

Heavy rainfall warnings are still in place, and will likely stand form some time, with storms expected to persist until Tuesday.
