Heavy rain lashed Chennai overnightand left several roads and neighbourhoods flooded. The city received heavy rain of about 3cm since midnight. There was 4cm rainfall since 8.30am on Monday. Met department has forecast more rain in the next 24 hours though the depression formed in the Bay of Bengal is showing signs of weakening.

With copious inflow of water being recorded in drinking water reservoirs in the city, public works department on Monday released 500 cusecs (cubic feet per second) of water from Chembarambakkam reservoir in Kancheepuram. The water is released to Adyar river, that winds its way across South Chennai before reaching Bay of Bengal. Saidapet, MKB Nagar, Ekaduthangal, Ramavaram and Nandambakkam along the river embankment face the threat of waterlogging, if the flow keeps rising in the river.

The inflow into the reservoir was hovering at around 16,000 cusecs (cubic feet per second) on Monday morning. "We have decided to release 500 cusecs initially and depending on the inflow, a further rise will be made considering the safety of the tank," said a senior PWD official.
