Heavy rains batter Tamil Nadu, electrocutions leave three dead

Chennai/IBNS: A red alert has been issued for four Tamil Nadu districts in view of heavy rainfall in the state.

Three people died in rain-related electrocutions in Tamil Nadu on Thursday after unprecedented torrential rains battered the state, TN's minister for revenue and disaster management K. K. S. S. R. Ramachandran said.

Chennai, Kancheepuram, Thiruvallur, and Chengalepattu are the districts where a red alert has been issued.

Up to 20 cm of rains have flooded the capital city Chennai as a cyclonic circulation along the coasts triggered heavy rainfall.

Waterlogging has led to traffic congestion in several parts, causing hardship for commuters who were unprepared for severe rainfall.
