NEW DELHI: Tiruvallur collector has announced to close the schools and colleges in the district due to heavy rainfall in Tamil Nadu and other northern coastal regions of the state.
“As Northeast Monsoon is widespread in Tiruvallur district and the India Meteorological Department has issued a heavy rain warning tomorrow (30.11.2023), all schools and colleges in Tiruvallur district will be closed for the benefit of students,” the Tiruvallur collector tweeted on X official account.
Chief Minister MK Stalin directed ministers, legislators and representatives of local bodies to provide all necessary support to the people in rain affected areas. A Meteorological department official said Chennai and nearby regions in northern coastal Tamil Nadu experienced heavy rainfall on Wednesday, which was in the range of 5 cm-6 cm and even above in some areas.
Besides heavy traffic congestion, the intermittent heavy rains also affected neighbouring districts of Tiruvallur, Kancheepuram and Chengelpet.
A Regional Meteorological Centre bulletin here said Tuesday’s Low Pressure Area developed into a Well Marked Low Pressure Area on November 29. The low pressure system is over southeast Bay of Bengal and adjoining south Andaman Sea.
The system is likely to concentrate into a depression on November 30 and later into a cyclonic storm. Under the influence of a cyclonic circulation over Sri Lanka and the low pressure system, rainfall is likely at many places in Tamil Nadu and neighbouring Puducherry up to December 3.
