Mumbai: At least 20 people have lost their lives after getting trapped under the rubble of their homes in Chembur and Vikhroli areas of Mumbai on Sunday. Heavy rains lashed the city and its suburban areas for several hours late Saturday night and early Sunday morning.

A red alert has been sounded in the city and the authorities have advised people not to venture out in the open.

A residential building (ground-plus-one) collapsed in the Vikhroli area on Sunday morning, killing on the spot three people, according to the municipal body, Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC).

As many as 15 people have been rescued from Chembur’s Bharat Nagar area and nine people from Vikroli’s Surya Nagar, officials said. The rescue operation is still on in both areas as more people are feared trapped under the rubble.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced a compensation of ₹ 2 lakh each to the families of the deceased. “Rs. 50,000 would be given to those injured,” PMO said on Twitter.

Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray’s office also declared ₹ 5 lakh each to the deceased’s families. Earlier state Environment Minister Aditya Thackeray, son of the Chief Minister, paid a visit to the accident site in Chembur. Mumbai had 176.96 mm rain from 8 pm to 8 am, according to officials. The eastern suburbs recorded 204.07 mm while the western had 195.48 mm rainfall, respectively.
