Mumbai police sends out sms: Please do not travel
Many Mumbaikars got this sms on their cell-phones after heavy rains flooded the city of Mumbai (India):
Due to heavy rains, water logging likely. Please do not travel unless essential—Mumbai Police.This time though, the government seemed better prepared even as the state-wide toll topped 890.
The police sent text messages to subscribers of several mobile networks requesting them to stay indoors. Police Commissioner A N Roy came on television to convey the same message. And additional traffic policemen were despatched to divert traffic from waterlogged areas like Dadar, Matunga, King’s Circle and Andheri.
