MUMBAI: Heavy rains struck Mumbai this morning and are set to continue for a few das. The Indian Meteorological Department has forecast “heavy to very heavy” rains in the city on June 9 and in Maharashtra in general June 7-11.

* Don’t just keep everything charged, keep even battery backups charged. Make sure you have extra batteries for your torch. Get extra torches while you’re at it. Charge your back- up batteries and power banks too.

* Similarly, stock up on food, medicines and all essentials, as you shouldn’t go out and because shops and services may be shut for more than a day.
