Chennaites have been observing incessant rain for more than a week now. Heavy rains have resulted in submerging of roads, disruption of air, rail and road traffic. These rains have thrown normal life down the drain as people continue to get affected by the after effects of torrential rain.
However, the intensity of rain has reduced in the past 36 to 48 hours. But, the state government has declared the schools to be closed this week as more rain is in the offing. Light to moderate rainfall is likely to continue over the state capital for another 24 hours. Some places may observe good showers.
