In the past few days, Kanyakumari, the Cauvery delta regions and northern districts of Tamil Nadu including Chennai witnessed heavy rainfall. Owing to the northeast monsoon, Kanyakumari district (between October 1 and November 15) received 83.96 cm rainfall, whereas 38.99 cm is the normal and the percentage departure from normal rainfall is 115, the IMD said.

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M K Stalin inspected the rain-battered Kanyakumari district on Monday. He gave away a cheque of Rs 4 lakh as solatium to the kin of a man who drowned days ago in the district and distributed flood assistance to affected people accommodated in a relief camp.

Later, while chairing a meeting to review the situation at Kanyakumari, he directed officials to ensure swift flood relief, implementation of rehabilitation measures, maintenance of sanitation and the provision of food and healthcare facilities for people hit by the deluge.

On Tuesday, the ministerial panel formed to assess crop damage in the delta region submitted its report to CM Stalin.
