Red Alert in Chennai as 21.53 cm heavy rain in the intervening night

The heavy downpour of 21.53 cm in the intervening night between Saturday and Sunday, brought back the nightmares of 2015, which had recurred rainfall around 24.6cm. 

The excessive showers disrupted life and daily activities incessantly. It swamped several areas and blocked train services. Motorists and pedestrians faced severe problems due to intemperate waterlogging. 

Velachery, T Nagar and a few others were among the most affected regions of Chennai. Six subways were shut down. The ceaseless rain shot up fair prices of cabs and auto rickshaws, since inundation disrupted bus services. 

The met department forecasts that owing to upper air circulation, and formation of low pressure areas over Bay of Bengal, near Chennai, the city will experience such ponderous cloudburst for another two days. The corporation attributed the immediate reaction of the state-of-art machinery to pumping out water to preventing loss of life and property. 

Chief Minister MK Stalin declared Monday to be an official holiday for government offices, and urged private firms to allow work from home, for such weather disruptions. He had laid claims for fund relief from Narendra Modi. PM has asserted to help with allocation of proper fund amounts. 

The immediate reaction of the government and state-of-mindness of the locals have helped Chennai come out of this massive destruction.
