Heavy rains affected normal life in Chennai on Friday with the city witnessing water-logging and traffic snarls in many places. The city’s administration has ordered the schools to remain closed in the wake of incessant rains that have been pounding the southern city since yesterday.
Guindy, Nungambakkam, Anna Salai, Chrompet and Tambaram are the areas which were heavily affected. Massive traffic jams were reported from these areas. Several flights have been delayed due to the downpour and the forecast is that it would continue raining today.
Despite instructions from the administration, some schools send messages to to parents informing that schools will remain open today. This left Chennai district collector A Shanmuga Sundaram fuming and he issued a warning to schools.
