  • Insight Bureau Odisha is likely to receive heavy rainfall from November 12 due to formation of a low pressure over the Bay of Bengal

Chennai is likely to get more rains till Wednesday according to the meteorological department.

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami on Saturday said his government has asked for relief fund from Prime Minister Narendra Modi to curb the issue of water logging caused due to heavy rainfall in Chennai.

The second spell of NE monsoon rains began on Sunday night and a few areas in Chennai and the two districts experienced heavy rainfall through the night bringing with it usual problems of water logging in low-lying areas and power cuts in several areas.

IMD has forecast heavy to very heavy rainfall in the coastal districts of Tamil Nadu due to a low pressure in the Bay of Bengal and adjoining Sri Lanka coast.

While Chennai is reeling under the continuous threat of heavy rains, its municipal administration minister SP Velumani is not to be seen anywhere. Thus, moderate to heavy rainfall activity may make an appearance over the city of Chennai for another 24 to 48 hours.

He also said that monsoon has just started here and will last till December.

Since 8.30am on Sunday, Chennai's Nungambakkam observatory has recorded 6.6cm of rain in the last 21 hours. "Of the total complaints, 230 complaints were received on Monday", said a Chennai corporation official. Most parts of north coastal Tamil Nadu and some parts of south coastal Tamil Nadu would be getting rainfall on Sunday, said MeT. Chennai has already surpassed its monthly average rainfall in the first 14 days of the month itself.
