Chennai Rains: Holiday Announced For Educational Institutions Around 4 Districts For Next Two Days

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin announces holidays for educational institutions around Chennai, Chengalpattu, Kancheepuram, and Tiruvallur districts for the next two days.

Large parts of Chennai went underwater this morning following heavy overnight rain. The Tamil Nadu capital and suburbs were lashed by heavy rain on Saturday, with the India Meteorological Department (IMD) predicting more rainfall over the coming days. The weather agency has also predicted heavy rainfall in Chennai and neighbouring suburbs over the next three hours. Several areas in Chennai, including Perambur, Koratur, Anna Salai, Guindy, T Nagar, and Adyar went underwater.

The Tiruvallur Collector has announced that 500 cusecs of water would be released from the Puzhal Reservoir at 11 AM and advised people in low-lying areas on the embankments to be alert. Predicting heavy rainfall in Tamil Nadu, Puducherry, and Karaikal over the next five days, the IMD said a cyclonic circulation had formed over the southeast Bay of Bengal & adjoining the equatorial Indian Ocean off the Sumatra Coast. Its influence is likely to create a low-pressure area over the southeast Bay of Bengal and neighbouring regions around Monday.
