Floods in Mumbai on Sunday left at least 34 dead and an unknown number missing in the capital of the Indian state of Maharashtra, following landslides, according to the latest figures from Indian authorities.

Twenty-one bodies were rescued in the Chembur area, in the eastern suburb of Mumbai, and ten in Vikhroli, in the north of the city, according to the APF agency, which quotes the director of the National Disaster Management Force (NDRF).

The city of Mumbai has been hit by heavy rains since Saturday, and drinking water supplies were affected, as were public transport services.

Local authorities have not yet been able to estimate when the supply of drinking water will be resumed and have advised residents to boil the water before consuming it.

The latest weather forecasts point to moderate or heavy rains for the next two days.

Last month, 12 people died following the collapse of a building in a poor neighborhood in Mumbai and in September of last year 39 died after the collapse of a three-story building in Bhiwandi.
