The monsoon landed in Mumbai, India on Wednesday night and brought thunderstorms and windy weather, causing a four-story residential building in a slum in the Mallard area to collapse, causing 11 deaths and seven injuries. Eight children were among the 11 dead. Affected by heavy rainfall, many streets in Mumbai have been flooded. The Indian Meteorological Department predicts that from yesterday, large-scale heavy rainfall is likely to occur in most parts of the east and the adjacent central region. By the 13th of this month, the monsoon will affect the entire eastern part of India, bringing torrential rains on a larger scale. (AFP)
