In India, 11 people were killed when a three-story structure collapsed due to heavy rain.
Following heavy monsoon rains in Mumbai, India, a three-story old structure fell, killing at least 11 people and wounding seven more, according to authorities.
A police spokesman stated that dozens of rescuers were clearing the debris to see whether any inhabitants were still trapped.
Several portions of the city, which serves as India’s financial and entertainment hub, were inundated during the day due to heavy monsoon rains.
The building in a slum in Mumbai’s Malad West district crashed onto another structure, according to the New Delhi Television channel.
Residents assisted firefighters and police officers in rescuing people, and the seven injured were taken to the hospital.
In just 12 hours, Mumbai received eight inches of rain. Tidal waves of up to 13 feet prevented the rains from being discharged, resulting in flooded highways, rail tracks, and neighborhoods.
Building collapses are prevalent in India during the monsoon season of June to September, when excessive rain damages the foundations of poorly constructed constructions.
Following severe rain in the northern Indian town of Solan in 2019, a three-story structure fell in a steep terrain, killing 14 people. The same year, a four-story building in Mumbai fell, killing ten people.
