As torrential rain continued to lash Tamil Nadu for the 5th day on Monday, schools and colleges have been shut in 23 districts. A Red alert has been issued for Tiruvallur district. All dams are overflowing, several regions are inundated and cities and towns are waterlogged, paralysing normal life. Rail and road traffic is disrupted throughout the State.

CHENNAI, Nov 14: All schools and colleges are closed in 23 districts, including Capital Chennai, as incessant rain battered the State for the fifth day on Monday paralysing normal life. The meteorological office predicted two more days of widespread torrential rain in Tamil Nadu. Neighbouring Puducherry also has had heavy rains since Thursday night leading to closure of all schools and colleges.

A thunderstorm is forecast for Tamil Nadu, Puducherry and Karaikal on Monday and a flood alert has been issued for Theni, Dindigul, Madurai, Sivaganga, Ranipet, Tiruvallur, Kancheepuram and Ramanathapuram districts. The thunderstorm is likely to lash Nilgiri, Coimbatore, Tiruppur, Cuddalore, Erode, Villupuram, Kancheepuram, Chengalpattu, Tiruvallur, Chennai, Madurai and Kanyakumari.

Several parts of north Chennai faced waterlogging even as more rains were predicted by the weatherman for the day in the city.

Chief Minister CM Stalin visited the rain-affected districts on Sunday amid a fresh flood alert. Stalin claimed there is no waterlogging in the city except during rain. He tweeted, "Only during rains, there might be water stagnation but after sometime it's dry...Tonight I’m travelling to Seerkazhi and after that Mayiladuthurai and Cuddalore."

Water overflowing from Chitlapakam lake entered residential area in Tambaram. There was knee-deep water in Velachery and the streets were inundated. Excess water was discharged from Vaigai dam in Theni. Coimbatore dams were overflowing after heavy rain.
