Rail traffic was hit on the Central Railway's harbour line near Chunabhatti due to a technical snag in the overhead pentograph, hitting operations.
Road traffic also slowed down on the Eastern Express Highway, Western Express Highway and arterial roads due waterlogging in some low-lying areas.
Lakhs of commuters returning home from their offices were hit badly as they were caught virtually unprepared by the rains and stormy weather.
