Tamil Nadu rains: Heavy rains lash city and its suburbs; holiday declared for schools
The city and its suburbs experienced heavy rainfall overnight, leading authorities to announce a school holiday on Monday. The airport faced disruptions in international flight operations, with approximately 10 incoming flights, including those from Doha and Dubai, being redirected to Bengaluru. This diversion consequently impacted departure flights as well.
The downpour brought relief to residents who had endured scorching heat in the city and nearby districts in recent days. Consequently, authorities declared a holiday for schools in Chennai and its neighboring districts, namely Chengalpet, Kancheepuram, Tiruvallur, Vellore, and Ranipet. The weather office predicted further bouts of rain for the city and its suburbs on Monday.
