The financial capital of Mumbai and the North Konkan districts of Palghar, Thane and Raigad - which forms the large Mumbai metropolitan region - too was pounded by rains since the wee hours of Tuesday. 

The Chalishgaon tehsil of Jalgaon in North Maharashtra and Kannad tehsil of Aurangabad in Marathwada region too received heavy downpour.
