Heavy rains disrupt normal life in Tamil NaduNovember 14th, 2007 - 3:03 am ICT by admin
“For two days, there have been torrential rains. Consequently, water-logging and inundation has made movement in the city very difficult. If the incessant downpour stops it will bring some relief for us,” Suresh, a resident.
Heavy rains have also hit train services and power supply in the State.
Commuters criticised the negligent attitude of the administration and demanded the government to step up the relief operation on war footing.
“There has been heavy rain for the last two days. If the deluge persists, movement will be severely affected. The government must act quickly to check the disastrous consequences”, said Babu, another resident.
The highest rainfall was recorded at Maddipakkam, which received 21 cm of rainfall.
“Torrential rains are expected at many places over Tamil Nadu and Pondicherry. One or two places may experience very heavy rain,” said Ramanan, Director,etrological Department, Chennai.
Fearing that the situation might worsen, the State Education Department has announced closure of all educational institutions on Tuesday after the metrological department predicted that there would not be any improvement in weather conditions for another 24 hours. (ANI)
