July 12, 2022
THANE: As many as 18 trees uprooted in the city and few others mishaps, including structure collapse were reported on Monday, officials informed.
The 12 hour rainfall reading starting 8.30am on Tuesday recorded 20mm showers, which was enough for around 18 big trees from across various parts of the city collapsing.
Few structures, including one along the hill slopes in Ambika Nagar in Wagle estate area, were declared dangerous after the soil underneath sank while a part of a residential structure collapsed in Rabodi.
Three incidents of waterlogging were reported from various parts of the suburbs during the initial spell of heavy showers in the city, informed officials.
Meanwhile, a large part of the weather shed installed atop a seven storey building got dislodged from its framework and crashed on a neighbouring building near Kharkar Aali area of old Thane, officials informed.
Avinash Sawant, chief of regional disaster management cell said the civic rescue staff managed to remove the dislodged part that was approximately 35feet long and five feet wide from the adjoining building using ropes.
"The part may have loosened from the framework due to heavy winds in the area over the last few days and have now inspected the remaining structure," he said.
Luckily, no one was injured in any of the rain-related incidents reported in the city.
