In case of Mumbai city, very heavy rains in conjunction with very high tides can cause flooding as sea water flows inland through the storm water drains, especially in Mumbai suburbs where the nullah outlets don’t have gates that can be closed. Also the outlets of the drains are closed during high tide so water cannot drain into sea.
