There were many things that happened, most of them were not positive, the people suffered a lot is a sure thing.
Let us discuss about the things which happened due to the storm.
Failure of public transport:
It is not a new story that whenever it rains so hard, water logging on the railway tracks takes place.
This makes the running trains pretty slow.
Also delays the trains.
But this time it did not just slowed down the trains but also made them stop for a while.
People had to go through the railway tracks.

Due to the heavy storm many people, organisations, communities, from areas of sion, lalbaug wadala, matunga, dadar,came forward to help people.
Some communities were providing food and water for people struck in flood.
Some were also providing with places to stay for temporary.

In the prime areas of bombay like dadar, sion and lalbaug there was much of water logging
