Chennai rains: Heavy rainfall inundate roads, waterlogging in many parts and more showers predicted

Chennai: After a weak start on Wednesday, the northeast monsoon on Thursday brought intense thunderstorms over Chennai and its neighbourhood and triggered widespread heavy rainfall that continued well into the morning. Several parts of Chennai have reported waterlogging after the city recorded an average rainfall of 97.27 mm on Thursday. This, according to weather blogger Pradeep John, is the highest rainfall recorded since November 2017. As a result, many arterial roads of the city including Wall Tax Road, Chennai Central and Anna Salai witnessed people wading through water.
The Marina beach also witnessed water stagnation. An official from Greater Chennai Corporation said, “The intensity of the rains was high, so the waterlogging is normal. The waterlogging will subside in the next two hours.”
