Chennai battles flooding after torrential rains
Posted on: 02-12-2015 , 11:25:AM | DY365 Bureau

Dec 2, 2015- Heavy rains battered Chennai and parts of Tamil Nadu bringing normal life to a standstill. All operations at Chennai airport have been stopped for rest of the day and 22 trains to and from Chennai have been cancelled.
With the MET predicting more rain in the next four days, the state government issued a flood alert on Wednesday.
People in several flood affected areas in south Chennai were evacuated to safer places on emergency basis. The state government appealed to families living along the Adyar river to move to safer places after it released 20,000 cubic feet per second of water from Chembarambakkam reservoir into Adyar.

Power supply was snapped in many parts of the state due to a sudden increase in water level. Water logging was also reported in Guindy. Next 10-12 hours are crucial for Chennai as the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) predicts heavy rains in Tamil Nadu and Puducherry for next 4 days. The non-stop torrential rain, pouring since Monday evening, showed signs of a light let-up early on Wednesday, giving way to a light drizzle but most areas in the city remained submerged — some under 5 feet of water.
