Latest News on Chennai Rain

Rain will continue for next two days - Met Department.

Northeast monsoon hit the Chennai city on Friday, there was complete chaos in the city.

With unrelenting rain from friday night onwards the roads were soon flooded, leading to traffic pile-ups, and leaving commuters stranded in knee-deep water in several areas.

Though meteorologists described Friday’s rain as possessing all the characteristics of the northeast monsoon, the Regional Meteorological Centre plans to declare the arrival of the monsoon on Saturday. S.B. Thampi, deputy director general of meteorology, said the department would declare the onset after monitoring the persistence of the conditions.

While the rain brought cheer to a city reeling under relatively hot conditions for the time of the year and dipping groundwater levels, the joy lasted only a couple of hours until roads — including key ones like - Perambur High Road, Madhavaram High Road, Patel Road, B.B.Road, Melpatti Ponnappan Street, Paper Mills Road and so on.

Though the city is used to such a situation, the fact that it happened with a few hours of rainfall got residents questioning the role of the civic body.

In the absence of proper rainwater harvesting systems, water from buildings streamed onto already inundated streets. Motorists on arterial roads , including Jawaharlal Nehru Salai, Poonamallee High Road and Rajiv Gandhi Salai, were stranded for long hours in crawling traffic.  “Several main roads in  Perambur are flooded with knee-deep water. I struggled to repair my car that got stuck on the inundated B.B.Road, near Vysarpadi Railway station.

The meteorological department has forecast that rains will continue on Monday and Tuesday too.
