Chennai: Heavy rains in Tamil Nadu since yesterday affected the normal life of public. The Tamil Nadu Government declared holidays for schools in Chennai and Kancheepuram and for both schools and colleges in Tiruvallur district on Thursday.

The RMC has forecast heavy to very heavy rain for Tiruvallur, Chennai, Kancheepuram, and Villupuram districts on December 2nd and 3rd. Chennai corporation officials said the city received around 7 cm of rainfall on Wednesday and that the situation was under control. Puzhal in Tiruvallur witnessed around 10.7 cm of rainfall.

From 8.30 am until 10 pm on Wednesday, Nungambakkam recorded 5.6 cm and Meenambakkam recorded 7.1 cm of rainfall.

All subways except the one in Perambur, are open (as on Wednesday evening), said a senior corporation official.

Thousands of passengers faced hardship as suburban trains bound for Arakkonam from Chennai Central were delayed by 40 to 60 minutes due to water logging on the tracks in the Avadi-Ambattur section. In some places, tracks were submerged, causing trains to move slowly from 6.30 pm. All the local trains operated with overcrowded passengers on Wednesday.
