Schools in Chennai, Kancheepuram and Tiruvallur districts will remain closed on Monday due to excessive rainfall which is expected to continue for the next three days.

"A low-pressure area in southwest Bay of Bengal has strengthened into well-marked low-pressure area".

After week-long holidays after heavy rains, the schools in Chennai and other coastal districts of Tamil Nadu were reopened on Tuesday.

Ironically, the northeast monsoon, which set in during the last week of October had led to severe water logging in Chennai recently. "Considering the students' welfare, schools will be closed in Chennai district on Monday", said Chennai district collector V Anbuselvan.

Chennai's Nungambakkam observatory has eventually recorded a rain of 6.6 cm, during the last 21 hours starting at 8.30 am on Sunday.

"When PM Modi came to Chennai he discussed the issue of rain water logging, so we asked for relief fund from the Central Government and have sent a proposal on the same", Palaniswami said in a press conference here. Chennai, however, has recorded excess rainfall, receiving 68cm against the normal of 41cm.

"Most of the complaints received were pertaining to waterlogging". Most parts of north coastal Tamil Nadu and some parts of south coastal Tamil Nadu would be getting rainfall on Sunday, said MeT.

The first spell of NE monsoon rains, which began on October 30, lashed the metropolis for almost a week and led to the rise in residents' woes. Of 204 waterlogged areas, 109 locations were cleared. "Also, the corporation removed a fallen tree on Monday", a Chennai corporation press release said.
