Heavy to extremely heavy rains are likely in Tamil Nadu for the next three days. Four districts, including Chennai, have already been submerged. M. K. Stalin, Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, has announced that schools will be closed for two days due to the heavy rains.

Chennai, Thiruvallur, Kanchipuram, and Chengalpattu districts have been submerged. Chennai was hit by record rains on Saturday night. The southern city saw such rainfall after 2015.

It rained heavily from Friday night to Saturday morning. As a result, water started accumulating in the low-lying areas. Water has also entered the house. The situation in that state is so complicated that private office workers have been asked to work from home.

If the situation worsens, the Tamil Nadu chief minister has requested the private sector to declare a holiday. Disaster management forces have been deployed in the coastal areas of Tamil Nadu.

The meteorological office said rains were falling in the coastal districts of Tamil Nadu due to the cyclone that formed in the Bay of Bengal. Due to that cyclone, heavy rains are likely in several districts of Tamil Nadu till Tuesday.

However, the amount of rain may decrease from Wednesday. Meanwhile, the lock gates had to be opened due to rising water pressure in the dams. As a result, there is a risk of flooding.

Meanwhile, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has spoken to Chief Minister Stalin about the situation in Tamil Nadu. He also promised to provide central assistance for the rescue operation as well as compensation. Stalin also thanked the Prime Minister in a tweet.
