Due to heavy rainfall, a residential building collapsed in Mumbai around 10:30 PM on Wednesday, near Malad. The BrihanMumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) reported that three more buildings in the area have been evacuated, as the structures are in dilapidated conditions. 

The two-story building that collapsed was a slum area located on Abdul Hamid Road at Malwani, Malad. The incident was reported late at night on Wednesday by the neighboring residents. 

Mr. Prabhat Rahangdale, Deputy Municipal Commissioner of BMC said, “The search and rescue operations are being carried out. Three more people are still suspected to be trapped inside the building. The search operations are in process to find them as the survivors are still caught inside the rubble.”

Maharashtra’s State Minister, Aslam Shaikh said, “The building has collapsed due to heavy rainfall. The rescue operation is underway to remove the debris and find the missing people. The injured have been admitted to the hospital”. 

The rescue team has so far recovered 11 dead bodies from the debris and 18 others are severely injured. The search and rescue operations are underway, amid the heavy rainfall. The city has been witnessing heavy rainfall throughout the day. The weather conditions in Mumbai will almost be the same in the upcoming days as well, as predicted by the weather experts. 

Building collapse incidents in Mumbai are quite common, especially in the monsoon season. Low-lying areas are at risk of flooding and the city has been put under red alert as heavy rainfall is likely to lash the city for the next few days.
