The civic body has announced the high and low tide schedule for the upcoming monsoon and this year there will be 22 major tides. In the first week of June, there will be four consecutive days of high tide. Surrounded by the sea on all sides, Mumbai is prone to high tides during the monsoon. Although the sea is rough during the rainy season, waves above 4.5 meters will be possible and at the same time, if there is heavy rain, the water does not get drained naturally. In contrast, sea tide water enters the city through rain channels. This leads to waterlogging in low-lying areas. Therefore, tide times are very important.
