Wednesday was the first day of heavy rains in Mumbai, with the monsoon advancing over India’s west coast.

Building collapses are common in the country during the monsoon season that runs from June to September, when heavy rains weaken the foundations of poorly built structures.

In 2019, a three-storey building collapsed in a mountainous area in the northern Indian city of Solan after heavy rains, killing 14 people.

In the same year, a four-storey building collapsed in Mumbai, killing 10 people.
