MUMBAI: The Mithi river, whose flooding had brought Mumbai to a standstill during the deluge in 2005, threatened to go out of control on Tuesday, following heavy rains since the previous evening.

In Kurla, a low-lying area, 140 hutment dwellers from Kranti Nagar were evacuated by fire service officials as the river crossed the danger level of 2.8 metres.
