Mumbaikars braced themselves on June 9 to welcome the first showers of the southwest monsoon, as it arrived two days ahead of its expected arrival date. An Indian Meteorological Department scientist informed that a red alert has been issued in the city. Hours of downpour led to waterlogging on the roads, which resulted in traffic disruption. Mumbai police urged people to not step out of their homes unnecessarily and cautioned them against traveling to inundated areas.
Social media users flooded the platform with hilarious memes, jokes, and one-liners on monsoon and its ruinous nature. In no time, Mumbai rains became a trending topic on Twitter. People left no chance to mock the yearly struggle of every Mumbaikar. Addressing the first showers of Mumbai, a Twitter user wrote that the Maharashtra government will have to update COVID-19 restrictions to include ‘travel by boat.’
